01 industry in building the replacement of a light bulb is one of the many worries of everyday life, the solution of which today represents a most difficult problem.
The demand for incandescent lamps is enormous. The gradually ongoing electric industry can deliver only the most urgent requirements from business, academia and hospitals.
These shots of several German plants show sections of the extremely complex production path of a light bulb.
The glass bulb is undergoing a variety of apparatus, until he fulfills his destiny as a permanent and reliable light source.
The Word also applies to the lighting industry today to a large extent: necessity is the mother of invention. And these inventions to benefit the general public.
The Osramwerke in Berlin produce a so-called fluorescent lamp which - standardized on 31 Watt - emits a light intensity of 100 watt.
An equally valuable as a welcome innovation. A procedure to replace incandescent lamps is more important for the general public.
It was developed by electric companies in Limburg on the Lahn and Travemünde. Old becomes new!
The glass bulb be cut open and get new elements and base.
This refined process means a first practical help for the consumer. But the industry wins the necessary time to rebuild of their businesses and to overcome the shortage of raw materials.
Still a long way to satisfy every needs but, as you can see, a first friendly light look.

01. Reviving Industry
One of the many problems of today is the shortage of electric bulbs. The electrical industries coming slowly back into production only supply the most urgend demands of industry, science and the hospitals. These pictures taken in several German plants demonstrate the complicated processes in manufacturing a bulb.
The glass bulb has to pass a multitude of apparati until it becomes a durable and dependable source of light.
"Necessity is the mother of invention."
And so invention comes to the aid of the industry. The Berlin Osram Plant makes a "light-stuff-lamp" which is standardized at 31 watts and delivers a light of 100 watts.
A much-needed and welcome invention. Even more important is the process which repairs old bulbs. This Process was developed by the electric plants at Limburg/o Lahn and at Travemunde. The glass-bulbs are cut and get a new burning device and sockel. This is practical help for the consumer. And the industry gains to [...]e to reconstruct its factories and to solve the lack of raw material.
It will be a long time before everybody is satiesfied - but - as you see - a first friendly ray of light.

The Coupon Point System
The key to Germany's reconstruction is coal. With the union of the western Zones, immediate measures were taken to increase the production of coal in the Ruhr. First the job of the miner had to made an attractive and profitable one. Increase of pay was the first step, but the best way of boosting the daily output of the mines proved to be the Coupon System.
Today each miner - according to his output - receives coupons: that means additional food and luxuries. The highest monthly extra rations are: 750 Gramms of bacon, one Pound of coffee, 250 Gramms of sugar or sweets, a bottle of "Schnapps" and 100 cigarettes.
