Savannah, Georgia, An Illuminated Broughton Street, c1910

Savannah�s first incandescent lights appeared in a jewelry store on Broughton Street in the 1890s. By 1902, Savannah Electric had taken on the responsibility of lighting all of the city�s paved streets and powering passenger trolleys. The bright lights and ease of travel propelled Broughton Street into becoming a commercial and banking center, allowing stores and restaurants to remain open later, and residents and tourists alike to be shuttled into the city center.
