220c ~ Göbellampe of 1854, and incandescent light bulb, 2004

  • Notes: Göbel emigrated from Germany to America in 1848. There is much dispute about the invention of the electric lamp, particularly the part Goebel (as he became in America) played, including many law suits heard in the USA 1893-1894
