1930 Colt Carbide Catalog

1930 Colt Carbide Gas Guide and Catalog. 64 page catalog full of beautiful graphics of vintage gas lighting fixtures as well as some nice stoves and heaters. The catalog was more than just a catalog, chapters cover installation of lamps, heating generators, care of filters, testing for leaks, pie and gas fitting, safety concerns and more.

Interestingly, you could order drums of carbide gas direct from the factory. Page 39 of the catalog shows a complete gas generating outfit to outfit a 5-10 room home. The next few pages show the home handy man how to install the complete setup themselves........

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.
These lamps were used in mines after the re-invention of the medium in 1892. Carbide lamps were also used to illuminate buildings, as well as lighthouse beacons, and also used as headlights on cars and bicycles.
