UPDATE: February 4th, 2009
« on: February 04, 2009, 10:53:34 pm »
A few new additions have been added to the collection since the last update.  They include three somewhat unusual series burning Christmas lamps from the early 1900s: xl0072, xl0073 & xl0074.

Another Buckeye incandescent lamp was added with an interesting filament support.  Such tip anchored lamps were popular for use in high vibration areas were more support of the filament was required, such as railway use.

Speaking of railway lamps, a unique Union Switch & Signal Mazda lamp was added.  This General Electric precision lamp was used in a number of US & S Co. railroad signals.
