"Then there is electricity ... a VAST HEAD"
Who? What? . . . is The Vasthead?
The Vasthead name comes from Nathaniel Hawthorne, the author of the American literary classic, The Scarlet Letter.
The phrase "vast head" appears in of his 1851 novel, The House of the Seven Gables. In Chapter 17, an elderly character named Clifford speaks the words during a sudden, unplanned train trip, a ride to nowhere in particular.
As the train jaunts into the New England countryside, Clifford finds himself enchanted by the railway and the passing telegraph wires. Slipping into a manic mode of thought, he is ecstatic about the new technology and the new world it is likely to bring.
