Phoenix Day Celebrates160 Years of Excellence

Phoenix Day is celebrating over 160 years in the lighting business. The San Francisco-based company originally aided the plumbing and gas fittings industries during the California Gold Rush. Soon after, they shifted their focus to meet the needs of the lighting industry, producing the first fueled street lantern in San Francisco. Their designs can be seen everywhere from the San Francisco Opera House and Stanford University, to the Awahnee Hotel in Yosemite. The watercolor below is from their archives.
