no they didn't they had oil filled lamps hanging from a metal pole back in the 1800's.AnswerGas lighting was introduced to parts of London in 1812. Electric street lighting started to be introduced from about 1880 onwards.
As early as December 1877 arc lamps were used to light a construction site in Dublin. The Guinness brewery was building an extension and the provision of lighting allowed work to proceed on a continuous basis. The first public electric light in Ireland was at Princes Street outside the offices of the Freeman's Journal in 1880.

Which property of neon makes it possible to be used in electric lamps
[edited after some idiot wrote the wrong answer]The Greeks and Romans first used lanterns in the street, which burnt oil.However, the first electric street lamps were invented by the Russian, Pavel Yablochkov in 1875. It was powered by an alternating current source, just the same as today's high pressure sodium bulbs use.The peak of technology today uses LEDs which give off a white light, rather than the orange glow of the Sodium lamps. These LED lamps run on DC power.
