This might have been posted before?

Gary,

Yes, I think there was one like that before. But the light surely had to be changed more than just once.....and besides they probably had more than one black T so now there is a photo of each of them...;)

The old photos are always appreciated and we have new folks that may not have seen one that was posted last year etc.

Thank you for sharing it.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

At least he can grab onto that wire behind him if he looses his balance. :-)

Looks like an arc carbon street light. Those needed the electrodes periodically adjusted to keep them working. My grandfather (being and old electrician and collector) had one in his basement he would periodically light up. Those things were incredibly bright!

Well now that's OSHA approved!! He doesn't even have the ladder braces locked in!

I would have to think that the ladder legs are fastened to the roof of the Model T somehow!
He doesn't look like Laurel or Hardy.

Actually it's the first attempt at an electric powered Model T. Disadvantages were evident.
