Nestled under the glow of the Centennial Light Bulb a display consisting of mounted flat screen tv, framed awards, newspapers, and historical photos, and museum quality display case that can only be best seen to be believed. Dick Jones took the photos below and you can see all his shots by going to light bulb display.
