CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- An auction house says the owner of an Ohio plumbing company has paid a record price for an autographed photo of Thomas Edison.
David Grabowsky of Standard Plumbing and Heating of Canton tells The Repository (http://bit.ly/srb6Wn ) he relates to the ideals, passion and tenacity of the fabled inventor.
Grabowsky paid more than $32,000 last week in an online auction for a 100-year-old signed photo of Edison holding an alkaline battery. RR Auction, of Amherst, N.H., says the amount set a world record.
The photo will be displayed in a secure location.
