None of the earlier buildings of Metropolis were anything in comparison.During autumn evenings, the palace could in fact be used as a lighthouse, inexactly the same way like back there in America, with the Statue of Liberty. Itwould namely be lighted by absolutely special lamps. The lighting in the city wouldreally become unnecessary because of this Light Palace." extract from the novel CHILDREN OF NINEVEH (1915) by MAILA TALVIO (1871-1951) translation by LIEVEN AMEEL
