Amazing lamp haul from an electrical store

Amazing lamp haul from an electrical store

Click to view full size image

On the 31st, I visited an old shop on the outskirts of London that had been recommended to me by another collector. The store was incredible, with items untouched since the 70s and 80s! Very fair prices too. The left photo shows the entirety of my haul and the one to the right shows only the CFLs (most with magnetic ballasts!) that I found. I have already uploaded a few of the lamps separately, please feel free to request me to upload any from here you would like to see (or pictures of them lit up).

Nice! That’s crazy that there were items still left new in box from the 70s.

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, especially HIDs and street lights!

Orange packet '80's Accents, 2nd and 3rd generation SL's, Philips 90mm silver and red...what's in there a PF201E perhaps, GEC White and Red...whats in that...a Carbon Heater Lamp? Sylvania Lynx Diamant and lamp still in blister pack, 2nd gen Philips PL on the far left, softones, pink and white....yep. I agree with all above.

How much like stuff remained behind when you left that shop?

Pl Electronic T ....never even knew that existed!

Yep, there's a photoflood in the Philips box, and the GEC packet contains I believe a 150w ES lamp. I left a few things behind, mainly 10w 2d adapters. I'm returning in about a week or so, I will upload anything more I find on here. I did find a Philips PL electronic T in a bulb bin once and kept it because it looked odd. I have also seen them online in similar packets to mine but I believe they were 23w and had energy saving info on the front of the pack. I have also seen a 23w model in a more solid box with the late 90s green design on it.

Yes, first came the PLC Electronic D...the first C.F.L.i. The "T" would be "Triple" or "Tri" and have three "U's" at 120 degrees to each other, the "D", "Di" or "Dual" had two "u's" in a four pillar configuration.

The First PLC-Electronic D's had control gear like no other C.F.L.i (No "steering transformer.)

That's what I hate about blister packs, if they are intact you can't get at the lamp inside, but if you break/cut them to get to the lamp you ruin their pristine value.

I have two Osram "Decor-A Carbon 60's", one of the very last carbon lamps to be made by Osram, possibly by Philips at their Weert Incandescent plant...and anachronistically for a carbon lamp, in a blister on card pack. So I have one opened and the other pristine. So odd to see a carbon lamp in a blister on card pack too!

Hi, sorry for the late reply as I didn't see the comment. The shop is about an hour and a half away from where I live.

I always have trouble when distances are expressed as times....(a bad habit of recent generations) as one must then implicate a velocity between the two places...which could be anything!

So, you mean about 150-200Km away? (c100 miles) ...that's quite a trip (particularly when considering the return too)!

I have looked it up and it's approx. 50 miles away, so probably about a 1 hour trip away as there is usually some traffic to get there (this is near London).

Cambridge to London....yep, sounds about right...certainly worth going that far to get hauls like this.
