Lamps From The Shipley Colliery Horse Drawn Ambulance

Rex Toplis of Ilkeston acquired these lamps sometime ago from a client of his who was going to dispose of them.
Mr Toplis's client told him that the lamps were from the Shipley Colliery horse drawn ambulance which was based at The Field, Shipley.

The lighting was by candle and the candles were held in a spring loaded holder, the spring ensured that the candle stayed at the top of the holder as the candle burned down. The candle holders are shown below.

There are two manufacturers names on the candle holders, Wilson and Stockall, Bury and Howes of Burnley. The lamps have plain glass to three sides and the fourth side, the rear facing side to the lamp shows a Red Cross, see 616JPG and 619JPG.

Mr Topis kindly allowed me to photograph the lamps and he is happy for the photos' to be published on your web site. Possibly someone will be able to give more information on the Shipley Collery horse drawn ambulance.
