City Streets Ben Franklin BOM

The streets were in bad shape, there was garbage everywhere and at night were too poorly lit to navigate. Ben convinced the good public of Philadelphia  to pay for street repair, hire a team to collect garbage and to sweep the streets. Ben invented a cleaner lamp for the street lights in 1736 Ben organized the Union Fire Company  the first volunteer fire department in the colonies.  Here are my 4 blocks for this month.
