Electric Lights on the Way, 1915

Electrifying news from the Skidmore New Era, November 11, 1915, page 1:

Electric Lights.
The dawn of electric lights is coming our way at last. The company have been driving down holes for several days, from Maitland this way and with good weather they will get here this week. Monday they had poles strung about half way here and the hole diggers were not far behind.

No doubt but what the company would have had their line constructed in an operation here, by the first of September if the weather conditions had not been so bad all summer.
