Edison toured General Electric's Schenectady Works on October 18, 1922. The factory complex began in 1886 as the Edison Machine. The generator in the background generated sufficient electricity for two million Edison Mazda Lamps. The generators at Edison's Pearl Street Station in 1882 each generated enough electricity to power 1,200 lamps.
