321/365 - Fixing the light

321/365 - Fixing the light
Originally uploaded by dcclark
My friend John, fixing a very old light switch in our house.

In order to fix this, we first tried to turn off power to the switch. We have about 20 circuit breakers in our shiny new circuit box, most of which are labeled "general lighting". Not a single one of them turned off power to this switch. In the end, we had to cut power to the entire house. I love 100-year old houses...

And yes, that's a headlamp!

Our house was built in stages--1791, 1832, and 1925--and the circuit breakers, like yours, are ambiguously labeled. Have I been here before...?
