Note the dedication page refers to 1929 as the year of "Light's Golden Jubilee." It was in October 1879 that Thomas Edison, after 14 months of testing, finally got an incandescent light bulb to stay on for 13 hours. The book includes some photos of new buildings constructed between the wars as well as some older buildings "relighted with great effectiveness, using modern methods."
