The Story of a Lamp

The Story of a Lamp written in 1949 this part of Leslie Pinkham’s hand written introduction to the book gives a sense his pride and feeling of responsibility:

I have been prompted to write The Story of a Lamp by a desire to record for those who work with us, and others who may be interested, something of the early struggle of my mother and father in laying the foundations of a business which at the time of my writing, finds employment for nearly five hundred people, in order that those who choose to share their working hours with us, shall have the opportunity of knowing something of the more intimate side of our life.
