Inside the Majestic Red Barn

Electric light switch
From lanterns to electricity. When electricity was extended to the rural areas at the end of the 1930s, farmers' daily life changed. With electricity in the barn, farmers no longer milked cows by dim, flammable kerosene or gas lanterns. You could go to the barn, turn a switch and have light all over.
