Footnotes

  • Joseph Lucas Ltd was a British electronics company, founded in 1872 to make acetylene lamps. By 1902, the company had entered the automotive trade, making various components from magnetoes, starter motors and alternators to headlamps. It is to headlamps that the present lot has a close link, the silvering to the plastic panels was done in the same way as a headlight's reflector.
