Early Vehicle Lighting by Peter W. Card

Book Description

Today, it would be unthinkable to have to prepare an oil or acetylene gas lamp before the start of a night ride, and then to clean it afterwards. Yet this was just another of the trials and tribulations associated with early cycling and motoring at the beginning of the twentieth century. This book discusses the use and development of oil, acetylene and electric vehicle lighting fron inception to the end of the 1930s. A wide range of lamps is described and colourful illustrations of both lamps and period advertising give an exciting picture of early vehicle lighting.

Author Biography - Peter W. Card

Peter W. Card's interest in early transport lighting began in the 1960s, when it was difficult to find information about vehicle lighting or even to contact other enthusiasts. Since his first lamp purchase in 1968 he has built up a large collection of lamps and accessories, together with a comprehensive range of catalogues and advertising material, which have provided him with sources for numerous articles and books. He has appeared on television and radio many times, and part of his collection continues to be on regular exhibition in museums in the United States and England. Peter Card is a departmental director and auctioneers with a specialist auctioneer in London. He is a member of the Advisory Council of the National Motor Museum.
