There are nearly 3300 electric lamps in this sign, which is 100 feet long by 35 feet high. The sewing machine starts running and the small kitten plays with the spool of silk, and finally jumps up on to the table of the sewing machine, where it plays with the silk. The big kitten plays with the spool and soon becomes entangled in the red silk, the spool revolving and the kitten's paws and tail moving in a most life-like way. The big Corticelli sign is in the very center of the "Great White Way," and when you go to New York be sure to see it.
