Bevolo Gas & Electric
Bevolo Gas and Electric Lights began in the French Quarter in 1945 when Andrew Bevolo, Sr. revolutionized the production of gas lamps. Bevolo Sr. honed his metalworking skills while working for historic manufacturing companies including Ford, Sikorsky, and Higgins. His master craftsmanship and artistic style was the perfect complement when paired with the talents of renowned architect A. Hays Town. Together, utilizing a hand riveting technique rather than brittle soldered joints, they created what would eventually become known as the original French Quarter Lamp. Try taking a step through the French Quarter without catching a glimpse of this iconic copper lamp and you will find it simply cannot be done.

It was with these problems in mind that Forbes & Lomax launched The Invisible Lightswitch®, a simple, transparent acrylic plate allowing the wallpaper or paint to show through, with a stylish metal toggle switch in the centre. These switches were able to combine an attractive design with all the advantages of modern technology.
