I have great memories of turning on that one switch (laughter) and seeing light. It was such a wonderful thing we never – even though they were crude looking when you think about it now. I remember they were brown and white, the switches with a cover over them on the wall. And oh, to turn it on. But everything seemed dirty when you turned on the light, the light was so good in comparison to what we had before that!
