Two more UK pavement lights
« on: April 06, 2005, 03:56:59 PM »
Here's the Hayward Brothers pavement light I just received (from Canada!), it's lens No. 22:

As usual, it's photographed upside-down.  The flat side is on top, to be trod upon.  They usually appear on sales tables in this orientation, which is the way they sit best.  Usually sold as paperweights, as this was.

It appears to be a variation on their first design, Patent 1871/2014, and is quite different than Bernard's.

And this is the St. Pancras light (traded here in the US):

Keep an eye out for these things & send them to me!

A thousand thanks to Our Anne for spotting this one.  It's mine now, twas a steal, here's a picture:

It's in nearly perfect unused condition and embossed "I.P.L. Co.  Rd No 48677".  It was made by a company that was unknown to me, the Improved Pavement Light Company Ltd.  There's still so much to learn.  I am an egg.

Where's the smiley for kissing??
