The Firehouse Light, by Janet Nolan. Illustrated by Marie Lafrance

A short history of how firefighting has changed over the last century is wrapped in the true story of a hand-blown, four-watt light bulb which was installed in a firehouse in northern California in 1901, which has not burned out yet! The illustrations are reminiscent of American Primitive, fitting in well with the text. Lovely! 2010.
