I lack proper gear to run this lamp so I ran it up on improper gear for photos then quickly disconnected it.


I got this lamp from my school's maintenance closet a long time ago. The maintenance staff accidentally bought a 250 watt lamp when they needed 175's for the exterior lighting.

Ah! The loovely PINK start-up glow of the mercury resonance lines, (from a nice clean arc tube) on fresh Yttrium Orthovanadate....just like smelling flowers in the springtime!


Now back to reality, sadly! Yep, Bath is closed too! Closed in December 2013, so no more like this either...EVER! Keep it safe!


Throughout my schooling, I extracted hundreds of lamps...right from kindergarten up to Uni!

Some of my best and favorite lamps came from school!

I really feel for your age group, Owen. Just getting interested in collecting as the technology dies. I've had 51 years to hoard up lamps with almost nothing to stop me. Started with a shoe box of lamps in 1968, when I was four years old....now it has become two 20' shipping containers!

Still, considering the circumstances, you are doing quite well. You need to get out and about some old industrial sites, might find yourself some Hoboken era stuff.
