This is just amazing! are all your fixtures local finds? I search Antique Stores & swap meets all the time and never find stuff like this!

My very first word was LIGHT!

Hi Henry,
Most were gifts from close friends who are Retired electricians who installed, Serviced & later replaced these due to changing times. By the 1950`s the art deco era was over & these lights were considered outdated & people wanted them replaced .

can you imagine that many of those kind of fixtures were simply thrown away?

Were 2 foot fixtures the most popular back in the 40s & 50s because it seems that
most of them were of that length

Hey, could you upload a picture of the Ash Flash Discoverer II on the shelf? It's such a cool lantern; I'd love to have one someday.
