Back then Edison and Theshler (sp) where fighting over which type of power should be used here in the U.S.. So motors where marked as being alternating current or direct current. Thesler won out due to the fact Alternating current or as we know it AC can be transformed to higher volts so it can travel miles and miles with out dropping much voltage but DC (direct current) can not do so. As for what it was used for any thing back in the day they needed powered like a pump for water or other such thing

You mean Tesla. He was backed by Westinghouse, whose company made and marketed the AC machinery Tesla invented.

Edison: "Invention is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration."

Tesla: "If Mr. Edison would do more thinking he could do less sweating."

Yep but my spell checker would not come up with the correct spelling so I had to wing it. There are a number of people tat came up with may things like Tesla and a guy named Fisher if I remember right that made the first radio tube or was the DeForest?? which ever but RCA bought that patent. Did a term paper way back in high school about the first radio tube but can not remember the guys nae

De Forest invented and patented the triode. He also patented a version of the diode (which was invented by Fleming in England). He sold his triode patent to AT&T before RCA was founded.
