I just recalled that I had a photo of the bulbs on-line.

Hi Chris,

Back in the 1950s, I "rescued" two original Edison carbon filament bulbs that I discovered in my home town, one above my grandparents' staircase, and another at my wife's church. I still have them with the filaments intact. Maybe I should have left them alone, but I figured they would be tossed out and forgotten. My grandparents' home was eventually torn down, and the church installed an elevator. But the relics live on.

With the monsoon flowing into the southwest and the temperature bordering on 110F, there's little to do outside. This is my hibernation season.

For those in similar circumstances, here is a link to the worlds longest burning light bulb. It has been on for over one hundred years and has just passed a million hours in operation. Even has its own web cam.
