Moonlight Towers



The antique form of streetlights called "moonlight towers" exists today only in Austin, Texas, as seen above in a picture taken from this fine post. There's something pretty science-fictional or steampunk about them, especially in a vintage picture as seen here.

In some other timeline, moonlight towers dot the nation in the year 2016.

Maybe that's why Austin stays weird?
