Did a Flagpole on Disneyland's Main Street Originate on Wilshire Blvd.?

Did a Flagpole on Disneyland's Main Street Originate on Wilshire Blvd.? | Lighting in history | Scoop.it
A piece of L.A.in Anaheim...
LIGHTING 's insight:

I heard that the flagpole on Disneyland’s Main Street is an old Wilshire Boulevard streetlamp that got knocked over in an accident. Is that true?

Main Street U.S.A.’s designers did try to incorporate real vintage elements whenever possible, and the base of the pole is from an old streetlamp—albeit one that stood near Pico and Bundy until the city removed that type in 1953. Two years later the theme park opened. A twin of the “Walker 3-light,” as it’s officially known, is on display outside of the Bureau of Street Lighting in East Hollywood.
