The floodlight on the left was intended for temporary installations judging by the ground spikes and for lighting facades of buildings for which it had to point upwards making it necessary to arrange the glass in strips to allow for the enormous heat. The right hand floodlight was a more modest affair with conventional superheated burner and parabolic reflector for nearer horizontal use.

These pictures show two products, a ‘photoflood’ and a spotlight with the central picture showing the application of the photoflood whilst the photographer is taking a picture of an early loudspeaker. It wouldn’t do for chocolate biscuits!Copyright © Chris Sugg 2006-13
