1894 Windmills for Electricity
Wind farms for generation of power are part of our "modern" technology -- but is it really that modern? While culling through shot after digital shot of microfilm, I came across this article re-published in The Fowlerville Review in 1894, taken from one of the other newspapers that would land in G.L. Adams' office: Can you imagine what our life-style would be today if every yard had a windmill and we were self-sufficient for some of our energy needs? And, truly, could my laptop have run as efficiently by windmill?!
