BOOK EXCERPT:

One day in 1882, Thomas Edison flipped a switch that lit up lower Manhattan with incandescent light and changed the way people live ever after. The electric light bulb was only one of thousands of Edison’s inventions, which include the phonograph and the kinetoscope, an early precursor to the movie camera. As a boy, observing a robin catch a worm and then take flight, he fed a playmate a mixture of worms and water to see if she could fly! Here’s an accessible, appealing biography with 100 black-and-white illustrations.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Thomas Edison's love affair with the growing frontier town of Fort Myers, Florida is a little-known, but intriguing part of the Edison legacy. The man whose inventions changed the world and defined the future course of American life first visited the young and still untamed town in 1885, purchasing a winter residence known as Seminole Lodge that he and his family would use until his death in 1931. His Fort Myers home subsequently provided the setting for the many notables who would visit Edison, including automobile magnate Henry Ford, rubber baron Harvey S. Firestone, and writer and naturalist John Burroughs. Today, the Edisons' mutual bonds with the community are perhaps the defining feature of Fort Myers' history. The city has named numerous streets and public venues, its community college, a mile-long bridge, and its major shopping mall after Edison, and Fort Myers has recognized the annual Edison Festival of Light and Pageant as its premier social and winter events. Because of Edison's long association with Southwest Florida, his memory and persona hold an unparalleled significance for the entire region.

BOOK EXCERPT:

During the early part of the 20th century, five separate volunteer fire companies independently organized to protect separate sections of Raritan Township, currently known as Edison. The township was divided by fire districts, each containing elected fire commissioners with political and economic power. In 1926, the first career firefighter was hired, and since then, over 250 career firefighters have taken the oath. Edison Firefighting features images, memorabilia, and photographs from the early days of bucket brigades and horse-drawn carriages to current personnel and apparatus. Significant fires, explosions, and rescues that Edison firefighters confronted throughout the years are revealed within this fascinating book.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Edison, named for its most famous resident, inventor Thomas Alva Edison, can be called the birthplace of modern life as we know it. It was here at his Menlo Park complex that Thomas Edison created the incandescent electric lightbulb and 300 other inventions, providing residents with not only a place of employment but also a source of national pride. Known as Raritan Township until 1954, Edison was a slow-paced agricultural community until the twentieth century, with farms remaining until the 1950s. After World War II, in the country's rush to house returning war veterans, the expansive farmland became desirable real estate . Edison celebrates the township's history from its rural beginnings as a collection of small villages, to the arrival of the automobile culture on the Lincoln Highway and super highway U.S. Route 1, to its coming-of-age as a modern suburban community during the mid-twentieth century. This book combines photographs from the collections of the Metuchen-Edison Historical Society and the National Park Service, with some of the hundreds taken in the early years of the twentieth century by J. Lloyd Grimstead. Edison includes the many villages that make up the township: Oak Tree, Bonhamtown, Piscatawaytown, Stelton, New Durham, Pumptown Corners, New Dover, and Potters.
