Early uses of Flashlights in the USA were by NYC police who liked them. Can you imagine a world when that was a revolutionary high tech item. We have come so far from those early days. Now flashlights use LED bulbs and rechargeable batteries. What a wonderful device that we have become accustomed to and just taken for granted.
