Hi there, Slightly odd request. I'm working on a novel set in the 1950s and there's an instance where someone fuses the lights in a house to make the whole house go dark. What are the possible ways this could have been done back then? Is using the term 'fuses' even accurate for the period? I've thought of someone pouring water onto the frayed wire of a lamp, or jamming a hair pin a plug socket. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks and sorry for the bizarre question!
