Vintage Car Lucas MG Part Inspection Lamp Post

It was suggested to me that it is the back part of an ammeter. It also has been suggested to me that:
“These were sold along with the Lucas Inspection Lamps. The piece would mount somewhere in the car and you would hook battery voltage to the terminals. This provided power to the inspection lamp. These inspection lamps were used for roadside emergencies like flat tires and such, at night. – John K W”.

Lucas made parts for MG, Triumph, Jaguar, Austin Healy, Mini, Ac, Lotus and more.

The Dr. who prescribed this nasal syphon was also the doctor who was charged with aiding and abetting in Canada’s first court case of selling a narcotic without a prescription! The things you learn while trying to date vintage items!
From the Ottawa Journal July 11, 1941:
In the first case of its kind in Canada, Dr.- S. Laird – Alexander was convicted in York – County Police Court of “aiding and abetting” the furnishing of a narcotic drug to a person without a prescription, and was fined $200 by Magistrate Keith. Dr. S. Alexander, pleaded guilty and was given the minimum fine. The case was said by Dr.. Malcolm H. V. Cameron president of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, to be a “test case” in a recent drive of the Narcotics Division to “dam up the sources of supply of drug addicts. An Ottawa official admitted the drive was in progress and that addicts were “active” in procuring drugs through both legal and Illegal channels.  The charge against Dr. Alexander was that he on May 21 did aid, abet counsel or procure F. Snetsinger, a retail druggist,’ to give, sell or furnish a drug to a person without written order Dr prescription,) contrary to Sectlon 8 of the Narcotics Act and Section 60 of the Criminal Code”. The drug in question was diactylmoo-phinc Snetsinger was charged with ‘giving, selling or furnishing a drug to a person without a written order or prescription. He also pleaded, guilty and was fined the minimum, $2OO. Dr. Cameron said that Dr. Alexander was playing golf on May 21 when, he received a telephone call from a parent saying her throat was sore and asking for a remedy Dr. Alexander telephoned a druggist to deliver a particular prescription, which contains a slight amount of the drug. The druggist “refused unless he had a written order, so the doctor telephoned another druggist Mr. Snetsinger, who delivered the medicine. The first druggist informed the police. Dr. Cameron said. An Ottawa official in Toronto said there has been a great deal of trouble In the past six or eight months with drug addicts trying to procure drugs through legal as well as illicit channels and there is a drive to put a stop to it. One of the possible ways of obtaining drugs through legal channels would be to telephone a druggist and imitate the voice of a doctor known to the druggist and procure the narcotics, he said. T. B. Horkins acted for Dr. Alexander, and Cyril Carson acted for Snetsinger. J. C M. German was Crown counsel. “
At one point Dr. S. Laird  Alexander’s son Captain Thomas Laird Alexander was captured by the Nazis.

Vintage Davtex Doll plus all the clothes in the photos. The clothes are vintage as well as handmade. The purple dress is hand crocheted and the other pieces are hand knitted. The purple cardigan fits a little too big and I found that it fit a Ken doll very well. Her hair is a bit of mess and needs some TLC to calm it down. I have not attempted to style it.
Please feel welcome to ask any questions or to request more photos if necessary.
Please inspect all photos for details.

This is the coolest classic bedspread ever!

Twin Size Vintage Three Dimensional Spitfire Themed Spreadmobile Bedspread by Everwear.

These were made starting in about 1965 / 1966 designed by Mr. Sid of the Shapiro & Son Curtain Corporation in New York.

Measurements are approximately: 81″ by 97″

Here is the link to our listing of this Spitfire Spreadmobile on Etsy:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/533613180/vintage-1960s-spitfire-spreadmobile-car

This one is shown on a double bed but would fit a twin or single bed much better. We have included a few retro 1960s advertisements to show how it looks on a proper size bed.
