Research Facts
From an article from the Electric Railway Journal, March 13, 1909: "Dr. C.H. Williams' lantern is used for the color test. It is placed in the same position as the (eye) chart and light is furnished from the same line. The lantern shows white, yellow, red, green and purple. The aperture for showing the light is perhaps ¾ in. in diameter and the colors are obtained by revolving various colored disks over the opening. Employees are asked to name the colors immediately on seeing them and the changes are made rapidly, so that the test shows the aptness of the employee to distinguish them quickly and easily.To test ability to approximate distance from the apparent size of lights a lied is arrange so that openings of various sizes from ¾ to in. in diameter are shown in the various colors. These correspond to the varying distances fro lights on cars or switches and good judgment on this point is expected in order to prevent collisions or passing danger signals."
