BACK The Times, 14 May 1807. This is the case in point, with the grand discovery of the Gas Lights, than which there is nothing so important to the British realm, since that of Navigation. It was the discovery of gas lighting not its introduction that the Times thought ‘so important’. Gas lighting was first demonstrated in Pall Mall on January 28th 1807, only 4 months before this article, and was not introduced more widely for a couple of years.
