Illumination on Arc Lights
John Holden, a BIAG member, gave a lively and informative talk on Carbon Arc Lights at our meeting on 18th March. He spoke in detail on their history, design and use, giving a number of examples of how the technology developed and how society used the lighting to positive effect. For example, how the availability of wider and brighter lighting helped to make Blackpool such a draw for visitors. As well as speaking to us, John brought in a number of examples of lights and projectors from his extensive collection so that we could really see how this technology worked.
