I too have some Edison fuse blocks with knife switches in my collection of antique oddities. Taken out of those asbestos lined wall cavities..... I even took one off a ceiling, not even inside a wall! Painted over, still in service....:blink:.

Turn of the century work is archaeology!

Yes, Richmond also had gas lights before electric lights, so I do know why the hickey in an octagon box was 3/8 NPT..... to hang the electrified original fixture! ;)

We sold the house I grew up in when my dad died in ‘96. It still had one operational gas light.
When I was a kid, I remember dad proudly lighting that sucker whenever we had a power outage - whether we needed light or not!
