Electric lamps, the latest thing

A little over a hundred years ago this advertisement touted the safety of electric power over candles, gas or oil lamps. This is from the Feb. 24, 1906 edition of the San Luis Obispo Telegram. If you are reading this by a whale oil fired lamp you may want to E.M. Payne and get set up. The baby will thank you for it.

Safe electric power was advertised in 1906.
