Catalog for alkaline battery-powered lamps used in mines. Alkaline lamps were developed in the late 1920s and prone to leaking battery fluid, but were a vast improvement on flame-based mining lamps. The introductory statement notes the safety benefits and improved worker efficiency that comes with a less volatile, portable light source and suggests that, at press time, butane lamps had been superseded by electric ones. The Wolf Safety Lamp Company was established in Leeds in 1880.
