Handsome Windows

Yagerlehner, Charles - Lighting display, 1896-04-11HANDSOME WINDOWS

Beautiful Electric Displays Are the Proper Thing Now-a-days

Fort Wayne is becoming noted for her handsome display windows and electricity plays no minor part in their ornamentation. The latest addition to these windows are the large ones in the new Wolf & Dessaur Dry Goods house.

The electric wiring in these windows was done by Mr. Charle Yagerlehner, of No. 26 East Berry street. There is over thirty incandescent lights placed in each window and the artistic grouping and the neatness of the workmanship speaks volunes for the ability of Mr. Yagerlehner as an electrian.

The large display windows of the Globe Clothing house, with their sixty or more lights, are also silent witness to the ability of this popular electrician. In addition to handling electrical goods, door bells, etc., Mr. Yagerlehner makes a specialty of placing telephones in business houses, having just placed a number in the Root & Co. dry goods store, and the A.L. Johns wholesale harness house. Mr. Yagerlehner has his office with the Ogden Plumbing Co., and gives all work entrusted to his care his personal supervision.

    I think you’re right…..the editor is giving the electrician some free promotion/advertising. Would like to see photos of those window displays.
