Explore lighting before electricity at the Centre Furnace Mansion with examples of early candle holders, rushlights, whale oil and camphene lamps. While representing a brief period in history, it is one of great technological advancement in lighting. “Shedding Light on the Past” shows how lighting has changed throughout these centuries, how devices were adapted to take advantage of newer innovations in fuel types to improve safety.
