1912: Up-To-Date Aldeburgh

The installation works to provide the borough of Aldeburgh with electric lighting are being rapidly pushed forward, and it is expected that by Easter the generating station, near the railway terminus, will be completed, and the town lighted up. Handsome steel tubular standards for the overhead wires and lamps have been erected along the High Street and Crag Path; at other parts neat wood poles will be utilised. This very necessary improvement is universally welcomed by the inhabitants, and will undoubtedly enhance the attractions of this watering-place in the eyes of visitors.
