    In 1887, Thomas Edison built his innovative laboratory, prototype of the modern industrial lab, and, until his death in 1931, created and perfected over half of his 1,093 patented inventions there.

    Fascinating to see all the old equipment in the workshop. So well preserved it looks like they could start it right up.
