Join the Swanton Public Library and the Swanton Historical Society in a leisurely ramble through the ingenious world of early lighting. Ever since the first ficandlelightres illuminated the walls of Ancient Peoples’ shelters, humans have striven for better, safer and less expensive ways of lighting their homes. Using historical examples as well as old photos and advertisements, Prof. Wiseman will illustrate his presentation.
