What do the people in this photo of Capitol Hill’s Lincoln Park Playfield from 1909 have in common with the people milling about Cal Anderson today? They didn’t have any lights for their bike polo and dodgeball courts, either. CHS began this month by telling you the temporary outage of the lighting at the Bobby Morris sports courts would be over in a week. We were wrong. To end the month, Parks says there might be a few more weeks of delay:
City Light went to the site [last Friday] to make the connection, but found a major conduit issue that prevents the reconnection. Parks needs to install a new conduit in order to get the new connection to work. This may mean that we are out at least another week or two. We apologize for the delay.
In the meantime, polo players, etc. have to do things old-timey style — by daylight.
