Edison National Historic Site, NJ

This open space between the laboratory buildings served many purposes: delivery area, test site, motion picture set, photograph backdrop, greeting area, and parking lot. Activities here changed almost daily.

The laboratory buildings surrounding the courtyard once bustled with groups of assistants working on various inventions. Thomas Edison directed these projects toward a single end - organized, systematic research to produce "inventions useful in various arts."
