I just realized a lot of the early #cyberpunk future concepts looked purple and violet at first because a lot of florescent lights try to grab your attention with red and bright blue. And they tend to mix in reflections. Of course, now it's become a deliberate color gradient

Here's a lovely local bit of steampunk tech come to save the day, from 1852:
"Because of the 911 outages, a resident ran outside and pulled the fire box on the sidewalk.
“I give credit to the resident for knowing to pull that box,” Firefighter Marc Sanders said.
The box system dates back to 1852. Sanders says the boxes are independent from any utility company and run off a low voltage battery system."
