We've got several old documents posted and linked on the site here. I'd like to know if anyone knows of any more that We could post here. Can you believe that the code was once one page?

Bill,

I like the 1881 code. If only it were that short today, eh?

You beat us by a couple of years. I dug out some of my ref. books and found the date of our first "code" - 1883. Apparently it ran to a gand total of FOUR pages, though it doesn't say what size he pages were.

What is really amazing are the similarities to current Code.

Nothing about OCPDs though.

The Edison letter is extremely remarkable as to Mr. Edison's claims.

Does anyone know/remember how the testing went?


(Just kidding about some of the oldtimers.)
