Abstract

I send you plan of the two buildings of the Edison Phonograph Works. They stand in relation to each other in the same manner and at the same distance from each other as the marks I have made will come together. The point where it says 'Underground cable enters here' is the nearest point to the Lab, and that particular point is 500 feet away from our Dynamo Room. After entering the building at that point it will go under the floor by copper rods to the other side, and from there we shall have a switch board for distribution or whatever you should suggest. All wires running between the two buildings for lighting purposes can be strung right across. We do not need to take them underground. There are somewhere about 190 lights in the small building and about 333 or 340 in the large building. All these will be hung from above or swing on brackets from the side. I think it is safe to figure the main conductors for a total of 400 lights, as we never can be using them all at the same time.
