Coleman lamp that I used to do my homework from 1944 until 1948 when electricity finally made it to our part of the country in Texas. The iron was used to iron my clothes. Both pumps are original. Both used white gas and the pumps were used to pressurize the gas tanks. Rare to find the pumps with irons and lamps. Only thing missing is the rod that screwed into the top of the lamp so that it could be hung from the ceiling. Noticed that I didn't include the iron rest in the first photo.

    I have all but the shade on the lamp. I wondered what it looked like "whole". Thanks for the memories..........

    See you in a couple of days.
