Victorian cartoons from Punch magazine by E T Reed

Such an Unexpected Pleasure! The great advantage of having the electric light "brought to your very door," without any previous notice, on the identical day, too, when you are giving a party, and your friends won't be able to get within some yards of your house. And then, so nice for ladies if it rains! (a Victorian cartoon shows a street scene with labourers digging up the road and pavement to bring electricity to homes)
