1949 Sight Meter
This sight meter evaluates light strength for exterior and interior lighting. It indicates if light strength is appropriate for reading, sewing, driving, etc. It was used by Penny Powers for home lighting demonstrations in the 1950s. As more of rural Saskatchewan was electrified following the 1949 Rural Electrification Act, SaskPower’s Home Economist Division educated the public on the benefits, precautions and uses of electricity in the home. Penny Powers was one of SaskPower’s most popular public programs from 1956 to the 1970s.
