It sounds like a "deck prism". (I have an inverted one on my side board on a light stand). They are a triangular peice of glass, installed flat into the top of the deck, with the lower part extending below deck , and using the prisim effect to intesify and cast light below decks on sailing ships.






Looks like the same idea by different means. When did they tart using this? Mid to late 1800s I'd guess.

Yes. They make 'solar tubes' that are like potentiated sunlights that have much the same effect. They're pretty impressive in their ability to brighten up an otherwise dim room.



Very cool! Looks like an awesome alternative to running electric lights in daytime. Now if I can only punch a couple of holes in my ceiling.....


Yes. They're particularly useful in areas that you ALWAYS want lit during the daytime (kitchen, bathrooms, hallways), moreso useful if you're in a perpetually sunny climate (e.g., SoCal). So what are you waiting for? Start punching holes in yer roof! Who cares if it's not really your house and all?

I'd would love to try that, except the people living on the floor above me might not appreciate it...

Are you responding to Onime's posting on ordering a Bailey's Irish Cream and acting gay?

You're right-the neighbors above you might not like it.

The oldest one that we know of is In the Morgan at the old whaling museums. It's belived to be centuries older, but evidence is scarce. I know old warships have been said to have employed something like it from rooms outside of leading into magazines (powered by some form of "safety latern") , but evidence is scarce. Sorry.

So next year join up with the crazy German and come on over for the grand tour! And of course you COULD come at a time other than the middle of summer.

O'Brien mentions something called a "dark lantern". My guess is that it was a candle of oil wick enclosed in some sort of device which would not expose the open flame to air even if dropped.

It's only civilian owned Spitfires that have that undercarriage problem My bastard co-workers dropped a Hurricane fuel tank on my hand when we were putting it back into LF
