I love history.  This (somehow) reminded me of when I worked in a greenhouse (1966-69) and had to provide timed night lighting for Chrysanthemums to make them bloom at the right time.  Back then, I was given a long spool of 2-conductor, which was probably 16ga, to attach piercing "screw-on" bulb sockets about every 4 feet.  The runs were 100 feet each (about 25 bulbs, probably 60w).  There were 3 runs.  I ran the 3 twisted pairs about another 60-100 feet, depending on the row, to the breaker panel.  I learned real quick which wire was which.

We killed grubs by putting beer in shallow dishes.  They were filled by morning.  How's That for an eco-friendly way to deal with pests!
