Restoration

Over the years, we’ve restored thousands of lights that would otherwise have become scrap - examining, refurbishing and updating one part at a time. But we don’t only piece together the light’s components. We take the time to investigate its history, studying old catalogues for clues and assembling the whole story. The extract shown is from our own internal archive and details the lights in situ above a bomb fuse assembly line. Taken from 'Explosives' published by Pelican Books. Dated 1942.
