    A few images of my display.

    In the awning. The Tilley PL52 is one of my favourites not just because it is 84 years old but I am only the second owner, I bought it from the man who bought it new in 1938. A second fix joiner in new built houses, when others had to go home because of failing light, he (second fix joiner) would light this lamp and carry on working - floor boards, skirting boards etc. - and although a considerable expense at the time, it wasn't long before it payed for itself. "The best money I ever spent" I remember him saying.

    Thanks Pete.
    Exactly, PL52's are common enough but for me the provenence on this one makes it special.
    I still have Mum's DN250 iron bought new in 1955 and I'm sure Dad was only the second owner of the TL10 which now lives in my front room.

    Yes the weather was good @JEFF JOHNSON though occasionally a little too hot.
    I'm sure the effort increases proportionately with my advancing years but yes, it's still worth it. @James K @podbros

    Hello Jean, it's a Nagel Chase model 4 from about 1914 to 1916. It's basically the same as this one posted by @Dean D
    Nagle Chase Model 4
    but my example doesn't have the extra fitting on the tank and the "chimney" is plated as opposed to being enamelled. I find mine works best with 15 to 20% petrol added to the kero.
