Today we take alternating current – the type that comes out of your wall socket – to be a given. We could not live without it! Yet in 1904, AC was the newest technology available on the marketplace. In these films you will see how the current was harnessed to light up our world!

Marvel At The Westinghouse Works!

This DVD contains classic clips of the Westinghouse Works, where George Westinghouse made his invaluable inventions. You will see the first steam turbine for a U.S. electric utility, the first main-roll drive for a steel mill, the first geared-turbine drive for a Navy ship, and the first American-built tungsten-filament lamp.

In 1900, George Westinghouse introduced the slogan, "The Name Westinghouse is a Guarantee." Today we say, "You can be sure…if it’s Westinghouse." However you say it, Westinghouse has been and will continue to be known for innovation, quality and for technology designed to improve the welfare of mankind.

This DVD has everything you could want if you are an
enthusiastic historian - or just interested in
learning about great inventors!

Inside you will find hours of entertaining footage shot by some of the best production teams of the era. Because cinema was in its infancy, all the films were silent! Here is what you will find on this incredible DVD:

Assembling A Generator, Westinghouse Works 
On the first track of this DVD, a group of men work on various parts of a large generator, assembling the pieces. A crane carries a large piece of the generator over to the rest of the machine, and the men guide it down to construct it. The crane brings two other pieces to the machine and lays them down where they belong.
