A much better reupload of the original photo.

These beautiful black-ender lamps live in my grandparents' 1940s 2x F20T12 fixture. They have moderate wear, and were apparently made in Canada. Unfortunately the endcaps are loose on both of them, but they still work just fine.

One of these lamps ran for the first time in possibly 50 years the day I took this photo. It has sat outside the fixture my entire life, with a 1962 Sylvania being used in its place. I can only assume that the loose endcaps caused it to stop working, and they bought the Sylvania to replace it. If that's the case, it's amazing that they never discarded it, and now I'm glad they didn't since it works!

Thanks to Silverliner for the approximate date and location of manufacture.
