Shut up troll. It's actually interesting to find out that in some places in the U.S., some people didn't get electricity until as late as the fifties. I would have thought that most everyone had it by the time that the thirties rolled around.

I found it quite interesting that someone's grandparents didn't have electricity until 1953; my mum recalls having electricity for the 1st time in either 1942 or 1943 in her parent's house, in London, England.

"When did homes start using electric light?"... well not that I know. But one thing I do know is: several million homes will still not use electric light till 2030. Mostly these homes will be found in Africa and South America. This is a challenge for the leaders of these parts of the world!
