Power to the People, Tesla's Current Reaches Buffalo

Power to the People, Tesla's Current Reaches Buffalo

RUN BY FALLS POWER - Street Cars Operated By New Current - Nov. 19 1896

   The cars of the Buffalo Railway Company began yesterday to move by water-power. The mighty energy of Niagara Falls, harnessed to turbine wheels, and transmitted over copper wires to Buffalo, supplied the force that turned the wheels of traffic and brought nickels to the coffers of the street car company. The success of the transmission of the power was completely and fully demonstrated.

  There has not been at any time since the first dynamo began to revolve at the Falls, any doubt that the energy could be brought successfully to Buffalo. Never-the-less, the experiment was the greatest ever attempted in conveying such a volume of power to such a distance, and cautious people waited until yesterday, when the first practical application of the power in Buffalo was made, before crowing too much over the new force that is to revolutionize business and bring mills and factories and people to the Electric City.
