Drawing from the extensive archives at the Edison National Historic Site in West Orange, New Jersey, where the inventor of the light bulb spent the latter half of his life (1847-1931), Wirth traces the inventor's subsequent innovations in motion pictures and phonograph recordings. He also overviews his business dealings in the context of the changing nature of work. Among the many vintage images are ones of Edison's family, and his laboratory/ factory complex where he developed many of his inventions.
