When a friend of mine decided to move to Berwick-on-Tweed to start a B&B in a 13th C. bastion (with 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 person, a navy stock lot of 1930s Half Mile Ray lamps was located. Originally constructed to last a lifetime, he rigged them in series and 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 1930s technology. The overall look is cool, contemporary and at the same time historically correct.

- To replace the light bulb, loosen the screw at the bottom of the metal ring on the lamp front until you are able to remove the ring. Then remove the glass by gently pulling outward on the rubber ring around the glass. Remove the shield from the reflector by squeezing the 3 prongs on the shield inward until the shield lifts away. You can then replace the bulb which should not exceed 60 watts. After screwing in the new bulb, replace the shield, glass, metal ring and screw.
