1844: First street lighting. Engraving of the first ever street lighting, in the Place de la Concorde, Paris, France. The lighting was arranged by the French physicist Leon Foucault (1819-1868), using a carbon arc lamp. This lamp consisted of pair of carbon rods through which a massive voltage was applied. The high voltage caused a spark to arc across the two rods. It also caused the carbon to vaporize and this caused a continuous bright glow.
