I love how the STANDARD on these early lights was a screw-in connection, since most "electified" homes in those days didn't have any outlets, only overhead lighting. And in those days, 15 amp service for the WHOLE HOUSE was common.

It's a wonder those lights didn't burn down as many houses as the candles did.

Great ad Maria! I like how it says "Each outfit tested for 5 minutes before shipping". The prices seem so cheap now, but in 1916 that would be a lot of money.
