Old pavement lights in Norwich :: Shared Description

Pavement lights are also referred to as vault lights and sidewalk prisms, and are primarily used to allow light into basement areas. They first appeared in London in the late 1880s in the form of cast iron frames glazed with cut squares of glass. Plain glass fenestration was, however, quickly superseded by pressed glass lenses, which in turn were succeeded by pressed glass prism lenses designed to transmit as much light as possible.
