New Format www.PressureLampArchive.com

I have been working on a new format.

It was difficult to come up with anything other than forum software as archiving software was too expensive.

I could get archiving software to use on a PC but that meant I couldn't publish to the net.

Software that I could purchase that allowed me to archive and publish to the net was the type used by libraries and museums. They have big bucks, I don't.

So, a forum format it is.

Changing Platforms

It's become obvious that the blog won't work out as a platform for my intentions of chronicling the history of manufacturers.

I'll be changing over to a newer platform - as we speak.

No 55 Australian Designed and Built Light

I've just added an article and terrific ad from 1922 highlighting the new light Wizard released. It is completely removed from Nagel Chase.

I am hoping to have a photograph for the light soon. I am seeking permission to use it.

Wizard Mantles

When I came across the wizard mantles ad the first thing that struck me after the realisation that Wizard possibly made their own mantles was - what Wizard made their mantles out of.

Read their ad carefully and you will find this compounded vegetable fibre

Knight Light Stove - Urn and No 51 Light

I've just added these two items to the Knight Light section.

Some Gloria Light Co and lots, lot's more Wizard stuff to follow soon.

Knight Light

I'm pleased to have been able to get another of my favourite makers on the blog, Knight Light.

As always, as time permits, more will be added to this new topic.

Wizard mantles?

I have placed some information on Mantles in the Wizard Light Co chapter.

More to follow in this heading as time permits.

187A Flinders Lane

I have just posted information along with questions about whether Wizard manufacturing actually took place at 187A Flinders Lane, despite that address being labelled on Wizard Tanks.
