And still another box ..these were given to me by Barry 's dad..him and I shared a great relationship ...I know he did not always do things the way people thought it should be done....but he tried to keep his kids and family together in hard times. These old lantern were used in a time where they would have a canary fly ahead ..and if it return great if not get out of the cave. They attached these lanterns to their helmets for light. They give off a very bright light ..we used them for camping for awhile ..boy are they bright. The way they worked was water and cobalt ..the two mixeng and producing acetaylene ..which was the light(dad I hope I ma getting this right) Barry's dad has passed on...but I know he is proud of his son's and daughters ..for they all have came along way. And yes Barry did follow in his dad's foot steps ..Barry is a millwright at Highland Valley Copper ..where Barry's dad was a foreman ..many years ago. Thanks for the little treasure you gave me so long ago .

Hi Judy,

This is a wonderful layout, and thank you for the trip down memory lane. I remember Dad telling me stories about these laps when I was young and we even had them sparked up at one time.
