At the present time, public spaces are seen as the support of collective life. They reflect the inhabitant's culture and create the image of a place. They include a continuous public realm that reflects the image and identity of the city as it accommodates the many activities - individually or in‐group ‐ that make up public life and social interactions. The quality and image of these public spaces in the public perception is created by the cohesiveness of the public realm – the facades, squares, streets, open spaces, etc. – together with the street furniture contained within their structure. This paper will briefly describe the urban development of the city of Lisbon after the big earthquake in 1755 till near 1938, and the emergence of street furniture within this scenery. It will also identify the importance of knowing the relevance and effects of historical urban furniture elements in today’s inhabitants’ local memory and to understand its influence in users and in the overall environment.
