☞ REMEMBER: A Light Shop Circa 1920

Another image of the Consolidated Gas Company shop circa 1920 shows all the various light fixtures available for the updated homes of the time.  Hanging ceiling lights, milk glass shades, table lamps and floor lamps are all available for those with a modern gas household.  The sign in middle states that each can be sold on an easy monthly payment.  Check out the other wares at this old store in our past post on the gas company: LINK
