My rarest lamp ⚒
Can anyone tell me info on this lamp I got out of England several years ago. It is marked "whippet" around the water control lever, and has an internal gasket. Like, who made it? Has anyone else ever seen/owned one?
One i restored a few years ago
can not post pics :)
JUST GOT the following, it works, just, had to drill out a few things, blocked, need some info on this please, any think will do, Birmingham cycle lamp, carbide, going touse it, when I go night fishing
Hello. I've just seen some of your amazing photos of horses at work and being cared for in the mines. I would like to thank you for sharing them; the history of the horse is indeed; fascinating - just as these pictures are. We owe much to animals for their help in the past and that should never be forgotten. Thanks again.
The photos of horses in mining came up today. Tank you for saving the history. A mine near the farm in Pennsylvania used mules. I am proud to say these animals were well cared for.
I just ran into your page and it interests me a lot. I spent 30 years in Ontario Mine Rescue and flame safety lamps were standard equipment to check for flammable gasses and lack of oxygen. I collected several older lamps and now am trying to figure out what to do with them. I have a solid brass Wolfe Lamp that has never been lit or polished as well as a brass Wolfe Lamp with a steel font which is also new. I have a used Davey Lamp and several others - Koehler etc. I have also picked up several carbide lamps over the years. I would be interested in knowing if you can place a value on the lamps. Should you like to make contact you can E-Mail me direct at [email protected] Thank you for your time.
Merry Crismas Bob..
This is on Twitter today. An evocative photo.
I just acquired (2) Wolf Safety Lamps like the one pictured. Does anyone have any info on them?
