Abstract

Just returned to Paris from London. Apart from Weston lamps, there's nothing of interest at Crystal Palace apart from your dyamo and 250 lamps. Describes Johnson's 17 Jan fete for initial lighting there, delayed by blown boiler plug. When finally underway, "the illumination was very pretty, a chandelier effect being most striking where a few lights, by reflection from a white screen and passing through chains of facetted glass, seemed to come from ten times their number. Examined Holborn installation; very good. Big display of 400 lamps at offices there last week. "Col. Gouraud seems to be working everythying and everybody with his usual ability and Johnson is 'all right.'"
