The Lamplighter

Robert Steinkamp, 1993

Darwin Manuel, owner of Brea Gaslight Square, said the idea for the lamplighter sculpture came from his wife, Betty, a second-grade teacher at Fanning Elementary. He said they thought it would be appropriate because the students learn the poem in school and the lamplighter ties in with the name of their property.

“The sculpture has a story of its own,” Steinkamp said, adding that the foundry that copied the original plaster model in bronze went bankrupt.
