    Its been an old paraffin type light and they just ran a wire and bulb in through the top. :whistle:

     

    Not sure if it would pass an inspection but got switched on without an issue

    The yellow box is the new Electric meter

    Little hole in the floor that might need some self levelling fluid

    This is the ground floor with the debris from the floor above. The ground floor is oak and solid the first floor was pine. Spongy and rotten

    It’s been made the wrong way around.

    Any fool knows the light bulb should be underneath the oil lamp to heat the oil.


    The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

    Hah! That’s a first for me – a dual oil & leccy light. Seen mixed voltage units & mixed light sources (incandescent & discharge) before but this is soooo much better.

    More seriously, I despair when ENEDIS go ahead & fit cutting edge smart meters but refuse to deal with their old disjoncteurs. They still leave 650mA ones in place, which are probably older than me. The one in the picture isn’t quite so vintage but looks like the type with no test button…..
