1904

After resigning from his job just one day before, Louis Kossuth Comstock founds electrical services company L.K. Comstock & Company Inc. and begins operations on New Year’s Day, 1904. In the next few years, Comstock sees marked success: His company provides electrical services to a range of clients, including New York Edison Company’s Waterside Station the BMT’s Williamsburg Power House. Perhaps the greatest indicator of his early success was Comstock’s work on the Hudson Terminal Building – the largest electrical contract ever awarded at the time.
