One was an electric light bulb which burned in an apparently empty water glass. The other was a watch which told accurate time but seemingly had no works.
The watch, which had a glass front and back, with tiny hands the only metal through the center, was on display at Gibbs Jewelry store, 1709 N. Highland Ave.
It was made in France more than 50 years ago by the proprietor, Joseph Gibbs, who was "brought up" in the watch-making business.
The "wireless" electric light was on display at the Hollywood Building and Loan Assn., 1632 N. Cahuenga Blvd.
