Event: The Story of Carbon Arc Lights


John Holden, a BIAG member, will talk on the introduction of the first electric light. The early Victorian era saw first the commercial use of the arc light, which for many years was the only electric light source. Then there came the incandescent filament light bulb. John will talk to us about this time and how historic photographs and steel engravings are now the only evidence of this once common technology which has all but disappeared.
