A Short History of The Light Brothers

The Beginning

In the late 1800s, three brothers from Sicily arrived in New York City and began to manufacture brass beds. Not long after arriving, the brothers changed career paths. The invention of the light bulb sparked their interest, and soon they began manufacturing lamps & lighting fixtures. 

In 1903, the brothers moved their growing business to Chicago, where they opened up their first retail store on the corner of Lake and LaSalle Streets.
