      What's the Bright Idea: The Evolution of Lighting
    • Sunday, August 2, 2015
    • Artificial light brought mankind a newfound sense of safety in the earliest centuries. The first lamps were nothing more than shallow vessels filled with grease from animal fat or oil and wicks to ignite them. Along with candles, these lamos provided the first lighting. In a new exhibit at Pennypacker Mills, visitors will trace the earliest lamps used to bring light into the home to the first electric light bulb, showing the transition in fuels, technology, design and style.
