    1857 · 7.9 Earthquake In Fort Tejon
    Age 1
    The Fort Tejon earthquake, on January 9, 1857, registered at 7.9, making it one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in the United States. Only two people were killed, largely due to the sparse population in the area where the earthquake occurred. As a result of the large scale shaking, the Kern River was turned upstream and fish were stranded miles from Tulare Lake as the waters were rocked so far from its banks.
    1867 · Gas Street Lamps Installed
    Age 11
    The Los Angeles Gas Company installed 43 gas street lamps on Main Street. A lamplighter rode on horseback at dusk to light the streetlights. By 1873, 136 gas lamps had been installed in Los Angeles. 
    1882 · Electricity Comes to Los Angeles
    Age 26
    Electricity was first introduced to Los Angeles. The first electric street light had “three carbon-arc lamps of three thousand candle-power” and stood 150 feet tall.
