I remember how dark it was during the war.  There were no street lights and when my parents kept saying when we heard the song "when the lights come on again"  I used to ask them what that meant.  I had seen the lamp posts (gas) but had no idea what it would be like with street lights.  Signs giving town names were removed as well.
Editor's note:  No electric street lamps  then!  How did we manage?  Have you a story about hardships during the war or pre-electricity days?
