Uncommon electric promotional booklet: "Electric service in the home has become an essential comfort of our modern life" (p. 14), and this pamphlet encourages homeowners to get their houses wired for it, arguing that installations are clean and quick, and subsequent electric bills cheap. The text is illustrated with a cutaway diagram showing the process of wiring a three-story house with attic, photographs of electricians on the job inside various homes, exterior shots of older and newer buildings, and an interior image of an "American workingman's home, where . . . every possible economy is practiced." The colophon labels this "Electrical Progress Booklet No. 1," part of an advertising campaign noted at the time for its success.
