Brittan’s patent was to be an improvement on lightening-conductors. It was to be made of copper and he states in his application that “By making it in the form of a broad flat strip it is caused to present a large conducting-surface; and by making it without a joint and perfectly continuous it is made to have a great advantage over other so-called continuous copper conductors.” (Patent Number 43,565)
