Thank you to Michael AG
McNiven for letting me see the invitation, above, to the Control Station,
Dewar Place, on 11 April 1895, the day that electric street lights were
first switched on in Edinburgh
have the original ticket which belonged to my late father, who presumably
inherited from a family member."

This invitation above was
printed by George Stewart & Co, Edinburgh, the company that is reputed to
have been the first in Britain to produce picture postcards, at around the
same time as the invitation above was printed.
Here is a George
Stewart & Co postcard from the 1890s.
