To (112 107mm may eoncem: w 1t known that We, li'iENRY P. litesmlmaiz and lViLLIAM Cmsroeo, citizens ii toc Uiiitecl States, and residents of Meave invented a certain new v .lllu nineting Apparatus; and We do hereby declare that the following is a toll, clear, and exact clescription thereof, reference he ino had to the accompanying drawings, in which like letters refer to like parts.
The object of this invention is to furnish sufiicieot and suitably disposed light for use in photography.
, One feature of the invention consists in providing a number of electric lamps with rotatable shades which are longer on one. side than the other iii-hereby any of the shades may be quickly turned in position to hide the light or to uncover the light. With an apparatus provided with a large number of lamps, the operator can, by fuming the shades, i'eoclily obtain shade.
,eiiiothei' feature of in providing a horizontally iiiv which av large number of lamps are .moui ted, said frame being horizontally os- Oilletory and also vertically aoj ustable and combining with said frame means for supplying electric current to the lamps.
Still another feature of the invention consists in providing such e horizontal lamp frame in. sections hinged together so that" the main section can he oscillated horizontally end each hinged section can be ad.- ju stecl with reference to the others parts of the frame in oi'clei' to sec ii'e the desired results' Tho-full nature of the inventionwill be understood from the accompanying d awlogs and the followingclescription and. claims.
In the drawings, Figure l is e front elevatior of the device, Fig. 2 is a perspective View thereof from'the rear. Fig? 3 is en elevation of a lamp and shade on an enlarged scale. Fig. l is the same with shade turnezl half Way about.

tube 18 horizontally os frame and on casters 11 whereby the device may he roll-eel from one port of a room to smother A lT-roiii frame two uprights 19 2:116 '13 extend rigidly-3 up rights being herein shown as tubes (imfiiectfifil at their upper ends eii there iselsoen intermediate congestion 15 which is fixed. There are lateral braces 16 extending down to the lateral portions of the lease frame.
Theyeis a sliding frame consisting of the horizontal portions 1st seal 1''? and e vertical leteble with them, The rod or tube 1?" is verticallygiiicled by the uprights 12 the 1341s there are tubular portions 19 conneote with the tube 1? which envelop and slide on the uprights 12 anal 13. The vertical movement of this movable frame eeusezl by a screw 20 which has it hearing at its lower end in the base feame and screws through an internally threaded member 21 of the tubes lTancl hes hearing at its. upper end in a. hearing 22 connected with the tube 15. The screw actuated by e beveled. gear 23 co the screw and e bevelecl gear; 24 on horizontal shaft mounted on the uptight 13 and cli'iven by a hand lever 25. this i i-sens the movable frame is Vertically adjustable readily and is guiclecl by the uprights and is limited in its downward niovement by the base frame ncl in its upward movement by the cross her or tube I A main horizontal lump ii'eme 3Ov is see cute-cl to a vertical tube" 18 of the movable is horizontally oscilleta ble on said tube At intervals on saicl tubofelec; trical lamps are secured; and eleeti loel connections for said lamps leecl fit om e concluptor 32 to the lower end of the tube. 18 end up through that tube to the horizontal bars of the frame 3G to the vei'icus lamps. Hence, neither the vertical nor oscillatory movement of the pai'ts ii terfeie with the electrical circuit.
Ooieach end of the main lamp frame there is hinged an eclditionallamp frame 33 which; can be turned horizontally to any angle "with reference to the main lamp frame 30 and lamps 31 on the hinged frames are supplied Wit current by a conductor pass ing through the tubes of seirl frame "from the main. frame.

The invention is 1. Illuminating apparatus including stationafy framehaving two uprights, a movableframe slidable on. said stationary frame, means connected with the stationary frame for vertically moving the mo able frame, and a lamp frame mounted on the.
'movable iframe so as to be horizontally oscil- 'latable.
2. Illuminating apparatus including a. stationary frame having two uprights, amovable frame slidable on said stationary frame, means connected with the stationary,
frame for vertically moving the movable frame, a lamp frame mounted on the movable frame so as to. be. horizontally osciilatable, lamps on said lamp frame, and means passing through said movable and lamp frames for malntannng lights 1n sald lamps.
Illuminating apparatus including a stationary frame having two uprights, a, .frameyertically movable on said uprights including a vertical tube horizontally o'scillatable, a lamp frame formed of tubes and secured to said vertical tube, lamps on said lamp frame, and means passing through said vertical tube and lamp frame tubes for maintaining lights in said lamps.
. Illuminating apparatus including a base frame, a pair of uprights extending therefrom connected at their upper ends, an intermediate cross bar secured to said uprights, lateral braces extending from said cross bar to the base, a screw having bearings in said cross bar andthe brace, means for drivingthe. screw, a frame mounted on saiduprights so as to be vertically slidable, an operative connection between said screw areas-es .andsaid movable frame-whereby the latter is elevated or lowered, and a lamp frame mounted on said movable frame so as to be horizontally oscillatable. V
'. Illuminating apparatus including a stationary frame having two uprights, a n'iovable frame slidable on said stationary frame, means connected with the stationary member for vertically moving the movable frame, a lamp framemountcd on the movable frame so as to be horizontally oscillata'ble, and additional lamp fran'ies hinge to said main lamp frame so that they may be adjusted to any angle with reference thereto.
6. Illuminating apparatus including a stationary frame having tvvouprights, a frame vertically movable on said uprights including a vertical tube horizontallyoscillatable, a lamp frame formed of tubes and secured toesaid vertical tube, lamps on said lamp frame, means passing through said vertical tube and lamp frame tubes for maintaining lights in said lamps, additional lamp frames hinged to said main frame and formed of tubes, and means passing from said main lamp frame through the tubes in said hinged frames for maintaining lights in the lamps thereon.
" 7. Illuminating apparatus including a stationary frame having two uprights, a
movable frame slidable on said stationary frame, means connected with the stationary member for vertically moving the movable frame. a lamp frame mountedv on. the movable Irame so asto be horizontally oscillatable, additional lamp frames hinged to said main lamp frame so that they may be adjusted to any lampson said frames, and individual adjustable shades for said lamps whereby the desired light and shade may be obtained by the combined adjustment of the various lamp. frames and shades.
In .Witness whereof, We have hereunto affixed our signatures in the presence of the witnesses herein named. 1
