A new, mid-century outdoor lamp posted on a suburban street in suburban Baltimore on Tuesday may be the last for the former home of the National Lampoon.
The “Lamp” is a modernized version of the early 1940s American-made outdoor lamp, designed to be light enough to cover the ground and have a soft glow.
It has a glass base that’s attached to the outside of a wooden frame, and is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery.
It’s the latest iteration of the lamp, which has a different base, a larger reflector, and a different bulb color.
The first version of “Lamps” was installed in a neighborhood in rural Maryland in 2012.
It was also installed in Baltimore in 2016, and in New York City in 2018.
The city’s first “LAMP” was put up in 2015, and the last “Lamptown” was in Baltimore on Aug. 29.
The city plans to replace the older lamps with a new design, with an outdoor lamp being installed at the end of 2020.
In the past, the National Park Service has installed outdoor lamps at some of its national historic sites, including the White House and the National Archives.
