|Overview of Electrics before 1930|
The National Grid was not proposed until 1926, so electrical distribution was not widespread until the early 1930s.
Regional distribution by a number of independent local companies, privately owned generators (dynamos) and storage batteries
were the order of the day.
As far as appliances were concerned, electric lights were available and almost as good as gas lamps of the time.
Electric motors and various industrial machinery were in use in factories.
