Gas lights were most commonly used between 1820-1920, gas/electric combinations between 1880-1920, and electric starting in 1880. The General Electric Company was a pioneer of electric lighting technology with the formation of the Edison Electric Light Company that Thomas Edison was a part of. By 1890, the first incandescent lamp factory was up and running. Because electricity was so new, and many people knew little about it, many people still kept their gas lights, or had gas and electric combination lighting. It wasn’t until 1920 that enough awareness had been raised about the possibilities of fires caused by gas lighting, and the safety of electric lights in comparison, that almost all gas lighting had been removed, and discontinued from being manufactured. Some residents who had been born right after this change in the 1920s, and only ever used electric lights, probably lived in houses that had at one time had lighting fixtures that had all been powered by gas.
