Carbon Arc Lamps ?
« on: June 04, 2000, 10:45:00 am »
I recently acquired a Scientific American newspaper that contains a nicely illustrated artical about Carbon Arc Lights. It is the April Edition of 1881. The lamps look spectacular ! Does anyone out there have any of them ? If so, can some pictures be posted ?
They really look neat !

Hey THANKS Tim !
He also has a copy of that same issue of Scientific American. Those are interesting Lamps. I spotted someone who just found a Brush Dynamo made by his great grandfathers company.
