Those who enjoyed seeing Quantum Theater’s World Premiere production of The Current War in Westinghouse Park last June will appreciate this fascinating episode of the podcast History That Doesn’t Suck. The War of the Currents: (Thomas Alva Edison v. Nikola Tesla & George Westinghouse)
We recently came across this photograph of Marguerite and George Westinghouse, taken the day after the got married in New York City on August 3, 1867. One wonders if they had any inkling of the great things in their future.
