Caption

Lighthouse electric light. Historical illustration of the magneto (centre left) and the electric arc light (right) installed in the Cap de la Heve lighthouse on the coast of Normandy, France. The first electric lights were installed here in the 1860s. These were replaced in the 1890s by dynamos and more advanced magnetos. The lamp has a Fresnel lens. Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by Max de Nansouty, part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
