Caption: Industrial electric lighting. 19th-century artwork of electric lighting being in a shipyard during construction of a ship. The first practical electric lights were developed from the mid-19th century, with arc lights producing illumination far greater than gas or oil lamps. This enabled increases in industrial production. This wood engraving dates from circa 1888.
