In the town of Fort Worth, Texas a light bulb, very much like the one in Livermore, (most likely a Shelby), has been burned for 100 years as of Sept. 21, 2008! A feat only achieved by this and one other bulb in the history of mankind! It is now at the age of 104 and counting!
Most of its time was spent at the rear entrance door to the Palace Theatre, and after it's demolition, was moved to the Stockyards Museum. As the museum is mainly devoted to the cattle, and cowboys, the bulb has it's own special corner and display.
This display, and webpage, was due to the efforts of Sarah Biles, who ran the museum a few years ago. So please join me in exploring behind the glass, to learn the history of this amazing little Palace Bulb.
On my way to my new home in Georgia, I had the chance to stop by, meet these nice folks, and snap a few shots. Follow the visit link below.

As we heard about the 99th b-day a few of us from the Centennial Bulb sent our Birthday greetings. We talked to Sarah on the phone while she was eating birtday cake, and had her look at the BulbCam. Happy Birthday Palace Bulb!
