When a friend of mine decided to move to Berwick-on-Tweed to start a B&B in a 13th Century bastion - walls 10 feet thick and 22 feet high - he was confronted with the problem of how to flood the walls with the right kind of light. Being a smart and enterprising sort, a Navy stock lot of 1930's Half Mile Ray lamps were located.
Originally constructed to last a lifetime, he rigged them in series. To the best of my knowledge, they are still working. Our faithful reproduction is mounted on a mahogany tripod, its angle adjustable with a clever piece of 1930's technology. The overall look is cool, contemporary and at the same time historically correct.
