I used to have one of these. It was my pride and joy. We used to sled down an old road and I would put this at the end of the road so we could see where we were going. I am 74 years old and I was 12 when my father bought it for me. When he needed to see something, he would call on me. I no longer have it, but I wish I did! Thanks for the memories.

I found one of these up at my grandfather's cabin a couple years ago. My brother and I were cleaning out the old outhouse, the flashlight was still on the window sill. Same condition as one in photo above.

I have one simlier to this one but it has a lantern oppisite the handle (which is made of wood) and two light that do not swivel but look just like the one pictured.
I wonder if many more like the one i have exist?

I found one of these while demolishing a 1948 oil mansion in bartlesville, ok. Thought this to be very interesting and was glad to see another on your site to compare it to and to find out the year and era it was once used. The owner of the flashlite that I found was Harold Price, the owner of the famous Price tower in Bartlesville,Ok. The price tower is a Frank Loyd Wright designed structure.

Actually this was a convertable 6 or 12 volt flashlight. You could use either 8 D Cells with a number 965 bulb, or a 6 volt lantern battery with a number 27 bulb. With 8 D Cells it is still one of the brightest flashlights ever made.
