Safety Flame Lamp from the Shale Oil Museum

Safety Flame Lamp from the Shale Oil Museum

This object from the collection of the Shale oil Museum at the Almond Valley is a Hailwood and Akroyd safety flame lamp. Acquired from John Gilfeather, who worked as a lampman in Westwood pit after losing part of his leg when he was younger, due to possibly an accident with a hutch. Dates from around 1950.

The 3D model was created by the Scottish Maritime Museum as a part of the Scanning The Horizon project, working with collections from Industrial Museums Scotland (Go Industrial).
