The Turn Of The Century

A Selection of gifts from the Ever-Generous Frank Jones...
Frank sent me a Tesla Westinghouse Stopper Lamp. I nearly died when I opened the box.
After regaining consciousness, I'm holding a piece of real history here!!!
Some things need HIGH RESOLUTION photos! Just look at this!!!!!!!
Frank only recently sent me a self-luminous self-exciting (very exciting) Geissler Tube.
It's powered by friction - shaking it back and forth causes the friction of the mercury against
the uranium glass to ionize the vapour inside!
For those wanting a picture of it in operation, come to the museum and hold the camera for me...
I tried a dozen with no avail...
If that's not enough, here is a demonstration Crookes/Geissler tube...
Uh, Ehm, err.... Ah.... Io...? You do realize that is a complete set of Violet Ray dental electrodes?
Give me a Tartar Control Whisker Lickin' and I wouldn't have to use them!
(Even I could use some hairball remedy after seeing her in there!)
A collection of rarities: Westinghouse Stopper Lamp,
Two Tesla Speedometers,
an original Tesla obituary,
a first edition Tesla lecture,
a Waltham Watch Tesla Speedometer Catalogue...
