The Sun never sets on the ElectraChime Empire

Posted on August 24, 2015 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

"The empire on which the sun never sets" describes certain global empires that were so extensive there was always at least one part of their territory that was in daylight. It was originally used for the Spanish Empire, mainly in the 16th and 17th centuries, and for the British Empire, mainly in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The name Empire is appropriate for a line of vintage-style door chimes since long chime doorbells were first introduced in the early 1930s which coincided with the zenith of the British Empire. 

Empire Doorbell on the left welcomes visitors on the East Coast of North America  while the other serves on the West Coast. The ElectraChime Metro, with horizontal lines reminiscent of the International Style of Architecture, graces a wall in Sydney, Australia. 

As ElectraChime door chimes have been installed on six continents, the Sun never sets on the ElectraChime Empire.
