Electric Light at the British Museum

Here’s another article from The Times—this time from 24th November 1879.

Can you note any differences between The Times’ account of electric lighting at the British Museum Library and the account given by Tyndall, which you looked at previously?

Question 2

Why might The Times not mention particular issues that Tyndall discussed?

Question 3

What might be important about these omissions with respect to the concerns about electricity that Tyndall and others discussed?
