Chance Brothers Typical Illustrations of the Lighthouse work 1919
found this complete 33 page brochure at a Garage Sale!!! cost me $1
cannot download it all as its 5MB in total- enjoy!

Would like to download for everyone but this website- as good as it is- limits it to 2MB and 3 attachments only, also here in Australia the Telco is attrocious, I might as well be in the third world (however I am sure the Third World would be more advanced)

The brochure itself, after the first 3 pages, has one page examples of their lens', acetylene, kerosene items etc-for example page 6 has a full page photo of a 'Second Order single flashing light' the print quality is average (even though its an original). I also managed to get a box of other brochures, after all these years of visiting op shops and garage sales I finally have a win ( I went home a drank half a bottle of Makers Mark in celebration!) another great brochure is Pintschs Patent Lighting Company of London - looks old- no date- but the phone number is London 1477 !!!! all the AGA catalogues are 1 or 2 pages each and look like actual service updates from the company (see the AGA sunvalve catalogue I put on this website for an example)
Now all I need to find is original cap badges from the Commonwealth Lighthouse Service..... :D

Terry- I am not very computer literate so even just downloading these pages was an effort! however is their any way I could download these all to you, and have you share them on the site? I have scanned them all (hundreds of pages) and would love to share them with fellow lighthouse nuts free of charge

Could you possibly upload it somewhere - even in sections and let others download it directly, so as to avoid email limitations? Would love to see high res scans of the individual photos - especially the overall shot of the lens assembly area at the bottom of the page.
