Biographical Info.

Bio.
This lamp stand is an exact replica of the center light installed at Symphony Circle in 1870. It was replaced in 2002 following reconstruction of the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed roundabout at Symphony Circle. This project is the culmination of public-private collaboration involving the City of Buffalo, Erie County, Olmsted Parks Conservancy, Richmond Neighborhood Community Association, Symphony Circle Steering Committee, Kleinhans Community Association, Colgate Industries, and the Rupp Foundation. The light weighs 6,500 lbs., is composed of 95% carbon steel and 5% fiberglass, and runs on 110 volts of electricity.
