Paris the Typical Modern City. By Dr. Albert Shaw
Albert Shaw Century Magazine
Describes the 'scientific system which has resulted in making Paris the best lighted city in the world', especially now that it is 'on the point of being completely supplied with electric light'. Also remarks on 'the comparative barbarism of the electric lighting appliances in America', which is 'between ten and fifteen years behind Europe in all the matters'.
