This light bulb has been working continuously since 1901. It was made by a competitor to Thomas Edison named Adolphe Chailet and is located at Fire Station Number 6 in Livermore, CA. It has survived earthquakes, moves, and changes in voltage and still provides light. Despite his design, Chailet was never as successful as Edison. #iyl2015
