      I would say your husband is right but not exactly a headlight. This is missing a handle on the top. When cars first came out, at night someone was required to walk in front of you with one of these to warn other cars and those who were on horseback.

      Yes it connects to something. He thought on the front of a car. How do I post more pics to this?
    4. WideAwake0247, 2 years ago

      If not from an early automobile, maybe actual (horse-drawn) "carriage lamps"??

      Hi WideAwake0247 these were used on early cars but not headlights, not sure what to call them but there like marker lights usually mounted up near the windshield one on each side, you can see them if you search for early model T Ford photos.
    12. WideAwake0247, 2 years ago
      Thanks you Ejw54. I will def look them up.. can you engine using these to this day???
    13. WideAwake0247, 2 years ago
