Doug with U Win Pe - Pegu

Doug with U Win Pe - Pegu - Doug with his tutor, U Win Pe Win Pe took us to the 10th Century pagoda of the golden duck - a curious parallel to our dove from the Ark. Pegu in that period was a sea port and legend is that a royal duck flew in and landed on the high peak. There being not enough room for the female to land beside him, she alighted on his back, as seen in the statue, and symbolic of all Pegu wives ever since, who are notoriously able to keep their husbands under their thumbs. Date: 1952

Jablochkoff's electric light apparatus

Diagrams showing Jablochkoff's candle lamp. Paul Jablochkoff (1847-1894) was a Russian telegraph engineer who would rise to the post of director of telegraphs between Moscow and Kursk. During travels in France in 1876 he developed his electric 'candle', the first lamp to be used in large quantities. The carbons stood upright, parallel to each other which meant the candle did not require complex regulating mechanisms, but its main importance was that it brought electric light to the public attention. Marketed by the Societe Generale D'Electricite and was used to light streets, public buildings and docks as well as various industrial exhibitions through the 1870's and 80's. In London, the candles were installed on the Victoria Embankment, at Billingsgate, Mansion House and the Holborn Viaduct.
