Old Gas Light Fixture

Recommended Posts

My house had gas in every room for space heaters and lighting. Every inch of it was installed after the house was finished. Floor boards were removed and the tops of joists notched for the plumbing. When it was first electrified the sparky followed the same path.

There were no gas fixtures left when I got there, but I do still have a couple of the original luminares from the 30's (the house had indoor plumbing in the 1890's but wasn't electrified until after K&T fell out of fashion). The ceiling fixture from the front porch now illuminates the basement stairs, and parts of the original pendant from the upper stair were used to make task lighting over the kitchen sink.
