LAMP FOR MOTOR-VEHICLES.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Apr. 2%, 1917.
Application filed May 11, 1916. Serial No. 96,797.
To all whom it may concern.
Be it known that I, ROBERT E. BooRAEM, a citizen of the United States of America, and resident of the city of Denver, State of Colorado, have invented certain new and' useful Improvements in Lamps for Motor- Vehicles, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a novel combination of an illuminating lamp and a direction indicating flash light, under the control of the driver, as will hereinafter fully apear.
p In the description of the invention which follows, reference is made to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof, and in which;- a
Figure 1 is afront view of a motor car with which are combined two electric illuminating lamps, and two flash-light direction indicators in accordance with the present invention.
Figs. 2, 3, 4., 5, 6 and 7 show modifications and details of the device, some of which are on an enlarged scale.
Referring now particularly to Figs. 1 to 3 inclusive, 2 is the body of a motor vehicle, and 3, 3 are ordinary illuminating electric lamps or lanterns which are supported from the body 2 of the vehicle by means of brackets 4. The electric bulbs for illumination in the lanterns are denoted by a.
Projecting from the. casings 3 of the illuminating lanterns, are colored fiash-' light bulbs 5 for indicating the direction which the vehicle is about to take, and which bulbs, when energized, furnish lights visible from the front and the rear of the car. The casings 3 are each provided with a nozzle 6 into which is screwed one of the said colored bulbs 5 they being each covered by a transparent or translucent globe as shown in the several figures. On the electric globe appears a designating letter, W for instance, whereby the machine can be identified.
In the various views shown in the drawings, the same general idea is present, viz. the combination of an illuminating lamp or a lantern, with a colored flash-light bulb, for direction indicating purposes; and to admit of such combination, the casing of the lantern is shown as provided with a threaded nozzle into which the bulb of thedirection indicating flash-1i ht is screwed, but any other means can e employed which will effect the same result, thus admitting of a complete devicebeing furnished ready for attachment to a car.
It will be understood that the bulbs 5 to be eflective, must be'of some color, and the globes 5 which surround them translucent.
While I have stated that the invention is adapted for motor vehicles, it must be manifest that it can be used on motor boats without material change.
I claim as my invention:
1. As an improved article of manufacture, a light of the character described comprisinga casing with an illuminating lamp therein and a signaling flash-light fixedly disposed outside of said casing andarranged to flash and rear.
2. An illuminating lamp and a casing therefor, a signaling flash-light supported from the casing of the illuminating lamp and extended beyond the same to flash a light in all directions including front and rear, and a translucent globe supported on the casing of the illuminating lamp and inclosing' the flash-light.
