1892: Powerful Search-Light

Middletown, Conn., Sept. 12.–The Schuyler Electric Co. here have just received an order from the Government for the largest and most powerful search-light in the world. It is destined for the statue of Liberty in New York harbor, and will be visible for 100 miles and capable of transmitting messages that distance. It will be 50,000 candle-power, and will cost about $4,000.
