This is a vintage brochure for a contest run by local utility districts in 1924 throughout the country. It was distributed through the public school systems to upper level students. All entries were to be postmarked no later than December 15, 1924.

If you can't afford the real things, vintage illustrations are the next best thing, don't you think? I love the lights displayed in this brochure. The room illustrations are also very nice and simple.
