1902 - Lansdown Road. Alderman KENNETT, referring to Lansdown Road, thought more lamps should be provided there. As far as he could see on paying a visit there was only one lamp at present, and some of the owners of property in the neighbourhood had asked him to bring the matter forward. Councillor GODDEN said he could not agree with Alderman KENNETT. At present there were four electric lamps which been substituted for two gas lights. Alderman KENNETT replied that he did not know where the others were. Councillor WARREN called attention to the bad light at the entrance of St. Mary Bredin's Church at night, and said he hoped something would be done, as people coming out of church found it very awkward at times. Both matters were left in the hands of the Lighting Committe.
