EDITORS COMMENTS
This engraving, titled "La Lumiere Electrique en Tunisie, Eclairage de Sousse par la flotte francaise" transports us back to 19th-century Tunisia. The image showcases the remarkable collaboration between the French fleet and local authorities in illuminating the city of Sousse with electric lighting. The scene depicts a mesmerizing night view of Sousse, bathed in a soft glow emanating from street lamps powered by electricity. This groundbreaking technological advancement brought about by the French navy revolutionized not only the way people experienced their surroundings but also symbolized progress and modernity. The artist's attention to detail is evident as every building, tree, and street comes to life under this new form of illumination. It is fascinating to witness how electrical infrastructure was seamlessly integrated into an ancient cityscape like Sousse. This engraving originally served as an illustration for Amedee Guillemin's book on physics and electricity published in 1883. Its digital restoration has preserved its historical significance while allowing us to appreciate its artistic beauty today. As we gaze upon this print, we are reminded of France's cultural influence abroad through its overseas territories like Tunisia. Beyond military conquests or political dominance, it is through such collaborations that nations leave lasting imprints on one another's cultures and histories. In summary, this evocative engraving captures both the technical marvels of electrical lighting and the interplay between colonial powers and local communities during a transformative period in history.
