n. (plural of lightman English)

Usage examples of "lightmen".

It was a lonely job, this wandering the deserted streets with night coming on, one which, in the past, had frequently required the lightmen to act as im promptu peace-keepers, there never, in the past, being enough constables to man the streets effectively.

Not all the lightmen worried about such things, there being a plethora of young ne'er-do-wells paying city penance to keep the streets clean, but Ben took pride in keeping his beat spif-spaf.
