WESTINGHOUSE H39KC-175 /DX DLX. WHT. LIFEGUARD

WESTINGHOUSE H39KC-175 /DX DLX. WHT. LIFEGUARD

Click to view full size image

Wire frame construction internally, blue glass insulator and whitened arc tube points me to believe this is a westinghouse bulb but I need confirmation before I modify the title..

This lamp is in service in the houses security light which is a one piece light it's been up there for 40 years or more. There is an old PicHERE.

I'd agree with Westinghouse. It looks more like a Westinghouse than a Sylvania to me.

Yeah. The frame, the molding of the glass above the base, and even the base itself all scream Westinghouse. Mid 1970s vintage.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

Cool lamp Owen! What lamp did you put in the light to preserve this one?

I put this one back in service, as I could buy the same lamp NOS off ebay.

In my mind I see no sense in removing it from service especially since it's been running like a charm for 40 years or more and it is already fairly blackened. It still lights up bright but it's definitly not new. I already have two other BT shaped /DX lamps and I intend on buying a westy /DX online when I get the chance.

In the past I put a NOS westy Lifeguard of this same model in service on my parents house. It should stay there for a long long time.
