wires

I just finished reading a book, Then There Was Light. It's a collection of reminiscences about the rural electrification scheme in Ireland.  The stories were interesting and some concerns of the people at the time this was going on, in the 1940s were rather comical.  It was a good read!

  1. I presume you read the account of the man who used to switch on the light to find the matches to light the oil lamp and then switch the light off :-)

    1. I don't know if that was mentioned but it seems familiar and would definitely fit in to the stories told in the book :) There were a few others that just made you laugh and shake your head. A woman wouldn't use the electric kettle for her tea because she feared getting electrocuted. But to those people who experienced that new way of doing things, these were real concerns. A great read it was!

  7. Nicely composed shot. It would make a good cover for a novel about double dealing or double crossing...

  13. I think some of those concerns have now been transferred to cell phone towers.
