      you are correct sir!! there Edison (esco) acid jar batteries, pat. 1908 used to power some semaphore lamps. they came in two sizes (that i know of). You just dont see many of the complete batterys, ive seen several of the white porcelainized clay lids. There doesnt seem to be much interest in these batterys, but i sure likem.
