Interesting ! I'd be willing to guess that it was made between July 1940 and Feb. 1941 as the B-17 bombers pictured in the beginning are the B-17C model . Along with std. incandescent , I saw std. fluorescent as well as RF fluorescent , along with several other different forms of specialty lighting . I got a kick out of the lack of any form of safety equipment whatsoever such as the belt driven drill press with no guards over the belts !
