Alphabet Photography Project: E is for Electricity

Early Electric Lamps…and in particular, electric lighting. Lighting has been a fascinating subject for me, as long as I can remember. My parents told me that among my first words spoken came the short phrase “Pretty light!”
This picture shows part of a collection of early filament lamps made by the Ediswan Lamp Company, a company jointly established by Thomas Edison and Joseph Swan – they decided this was a better idea than arguing about patents for the rest of their lives!
This collection is on display at Cragside, Northumberland, originally the grand home of scientist, engineer and industrialist William Armstrong, now owned by the National Trust.

It's kind to share!
