Electrical Experimenter (05:09) January 1918

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Twenty-two pioneers of the electric lighting industry assembled at the Electrical Exposition in New York City on October 18th to take part in the dedication of a tablet which is to mark the site, at 257 Pearl Street, of New York's first electric central station in 1882. Among the men were many who worked with Edison in laying out the original station and distribution system. Some of these men are now executives of big electrical companies."
This is the January 1918 issue of Electrical Experimenter. The cover story is “The Electro-Magnetic Depth Bomb—Terror of the Subs.” Additional stories are about the effects of the Aurora Borealis on telegraph and cable lines, applications of the newly invented Dictagraph, and an article about the commemoration of Edison’s electrification of New York.
