Long before the clapper, push-buttons ruled the hallway.

Why did push-button light switches go out of fashion?
Sometime mid-century, push-button light switches
fell out of favor in the US, in favor of the common toggle switch
we're all familiar with.
I'm hard-pressed to think of the disadvantages of the push-button over the toggle, and wonder if there was a clear reason that the toggle came to be favored.
