    Yes George. Been collecting paraffin lamps, heaters, stoves, blowtorches and lanterns for a long long time.
    It's a great hobby, especially in the winter.
    I've a 1966 roadworks GPO lantern that gets used for fun too. Takes me back to simpler and happier times.

    I like old technology, because it works. I ride a 1969 BSA Thunderbolt and a 1973 Norton Commando Roadster too.

    A fine set of lanterns you have there, both wickies and pressure lanterns!

    Just be careful if you ever add an Anchor or a similar Chinese lantern to your collection. Sheds can get quite damp and the chrome plating on cheap steel lanterns won't last long!

    A good collection, I’m with you on simple things that work. I’m liking your Commando very much....
