A lovely shot of the Edison desk with a protective plastic cover. At left is a recording phonograph to record messages for his staff to carry out. This would be the early office dictation system. Today, this device is hand-held!
An interesting photo of the Edison library/office showing the beauty and scale of the space. Imagine how impressed businessmen where when they came here to meet with Mr. Edison. Visitors today gasp when they enter the room!
The year is 1926, and Edison is being given a tour of the new Kearny Generating station by Public Service Electric & Gas Company's founder Thomas N. McCarter (pointing). Also on the tour at left is then governor of NJ, A. Harry Moore.
Got to love those old cathedral windows in the Edison Invention Factory building-so characteristic of the time period-late 1800s. Power plants of the early 1900s also used a similar architecture, only much larger in size-when such plants were referred to as cathedrals of energy.
