Light’s Golden Jubilee was a celebration held in Dearborn, Michigan at the Henry Ford Museum to commemorate the the 50th anniversary of Thomas Edison’s incandescent light bulb. The celebration was held on 21 October 1929, (just days before the stock market crash of 1929) and counted Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Andrew Mellon, George Eastman, John D. Rockefeller, and President Herbert Hoover in attendance.
In addition to the Jubilee, the photographs included in this album show Edison's Menlo Park compound in its reconstituted form in Dearborn, Michigan (reconstructed under the auspices of Ford). Numerous photographs feature Ford and Francis Jehl, with a few appearances from President Herbert Hoover, and Thomas A. Edison himself.
