This coloring page shows an early American Lamp-Lighter as he does his job lighting the candles in town lamp posts in the evening.
As the new American Colonies grew in population there was a constant need for the creation of goods and services needed by the new colonies.
Tradesmen and home craftsmen alike found their services in great demand. As towns and states grew there began the need for common social
services such as policemen, firemen, mail carriers, lamp lighters and town criers. In addition the butcher, baker, blacksmith, and candle
maker were always in high demand.
