Retro Flashlight Motherlode!


Holy shit! Just as I get all excited about Dan's antique flashlight, I follow a link from his site leading to the "Flashlight Museum," a trove of amazing retro models showcased by a flashlight aficionado. Above, the "Rod-D-Lite," a combination fishing rod (or handle and reel, at least) and USALite flashlight, made sometime in the '40s. Fantastic.


And here to the right, a Sterling silver flashlight-shaped flask from the Prohibition era.

These are both just from the "Recent Acquisitions" page! There are literally dozens of noteworthy flashlights in his archive. Go check it out.

  1. Any chance you can provide a link to the Flashlight Museum? I can’t seem to find the link from Dan’s page…and, well, I’m supposed to be working so I don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to searching for it. 🙂
