Today we have a guest appearance by a Lantern of the Day. Smiley

We had a courier deliver an Urbis Evolo 2

I've got to figure out a way of mounting this so that we can use it as a floor lamp. Cool

At least it can be mounted as a post-top rather than just side entry, which makes it a lot easier.

Looking at what we've had recently lit as our 'Lamp of the Day' we realised that mercury was lagging behind.!  Shocked

Today we have rectified that, and here is our 1954 80W HPL lamp. Cool
