My mom said she used to put them on the cook stove to heat, and not only iron their clothes.. but also their hair, so they'd have nice, straight hair!

Carbide lamps, also known as acetylene gas lamps, are simple lamps that produce and burn acetylene (C2H2) which is created by the reaction of calcium carbide (CaC2) with water.


This was my dad's carbide lamp. He was coal miner in Alabama.

I live close to the Slate Belt of Pennsylvania....and this is an authentic slate used by a school boy or girl, with the school bell. I won this at an auction. Can you hear the teacher in that one room school house ringing the bell to end recess?
