Benjamin Franklin flies kite during thunderstorm.


Watch the Ken Burns series on Benjamin Franklin, if you haven’t yet. It’s awesome. You can get it on the PBS channel on Amazon prime.

I stumbled upon this a couple years ago. People found a section of one of Edison’s first underground conductors when excavating lower manhattan after 9/11.
