  Daylight LSide.JPG - DAYLIGHT - Unfired Daylight brass lamp, marked DAYLIGHT on top, complete with cap braces, 3 ring base, 2 1/2 in. chrome reflector, including Guy’s Dropper style bent wire water lever, oval water door, made by Belcro Ltd. of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England and marketed by Dargue Acetylene Gas Co. Ltd.; acquired from my good Alaskan friend Neil Tysver  (The Daylight is a British lamp made by at least two different companies.  One lamp resembling the US made Autolite was manufactured by Belcro Limited of Newcastle Upon Tyne and came in an early version with a Guy's Dropper bent wire water lever with an oval water door (as shown here) or a later version Autolite style water lever with a round water door.  Both versions are well made of heavy brass and include a bottom with two rings of rope-type knurling.  A second lamp marked Daylight was manufactured by Powell and Hanmer Limited, Birmingham, England and resembles a vertical style Justrite cap lamp.  The lamp was advertised as a model No. 72 and came with two reflector options as well as a round hook or spade mount.  It is thought the Powell and Hanmer cap lamps were manufactured in the late 1930s to early 1940s.  See Thorpe and Johnson, Eureka #6, pp 26-28 and Neil Tysver, private communications)
