Some of us are old enough to remember when lanterns were the primary(only) source of light, especially in rural areas before electricity was widely available. The lantern lit the way to the barn and down the path to that special little out house. A lantern can be classed as any portable lighting device used to light large areas. Lanterns are used in signaling, and widely used for camping.
In order to determine your final choice of outdoor lighting pieces you have to decide on where they should be placed. It is best to light only the corners that will be used during the dark hours - the sitting spaces such as tables and chairs, benches and chaise lounge areas.
The use of the kerosene lantern declined after electricity became widely available and improvements to battery operated devices were made. Today, the kerosene lantern is largely a collectors item and is never lit. The kerosene lantern of the 19th century has largely been replaced by modern fueled lanterns and battery operated fluorescent lamp models. Because handling liquid fuel is dangerous, most modern lanterns use a small disposable steel cylinder to enclose the fuel and is simply disposed of when empty. This fuel is most likely propane. Of course, there are lanterns in use today that use kerosene, diesel and ethanol.
The good news is that the styles today are much more varied than they were in the days of David Copperfield. While old world styles are still very popular, modern designs have taken significant creative leaps, accommodating every home and garden scenario.
Charles Dickens noted, There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast. Dickens could have been referring to outdoor post lanterns, a staple on the murky streets of London in his day.
