Standardizing light bulb bases

Herbert P. Richter.  Practical Electricity and House Wiring.  Frederick J. Drake & Co., 1950.
Edison came up with the screw-type base, ultimately eliminating the various other designs in production.  See the Wikipedia entry.

From another great technical book published by Frederick Drake of Chicago.  See my earlier post.
