Here's another to have a crack at, what is it?
Old crematorium chimney?
Wouldn't want to be inside that room when some old codger got fried Ha!!
Sorry not anything to do with cremations!!
This maybe a bit hard so I'll post another pic of it that should help (maybe not)
Old projector / camera ?
That will do Luke as even when I posted that pic on another forum I didn't know what it was until some dude worked it out.
It is in actual fact an enlarger, (an internal type of projector type thingy) you would place a glass plate which had writing or a pic on it between that timber section, reclamp it then light a candle in that metal thingy on the left then put your eye to a hole at the end of the bellows and you could then view the plate in an enlarged scale.
Apparently they were all the rage from the late 1880s till the 1920s, it kept the excited public engrossed for hours Ha! boy haven't we come a fair way since then!!
Tame version of the bush tv then
Can you tell what this is, what every bush camper needs!!!!
Some sort of heating element
Not for heating Smitty.
Not a lamp, believe it or not but it is some sort of cooking appliance!!!
The person who designed it must have been bored at the time to think that it would be a goer!!
was going to say old time fog machine, or a mozzie zapper !
It’s not a toaster?
Or I have seen a milk frother of similar design
Your getting closer fellas and it is so hard really, so I'll put us all out of our misery.
Wouldn't be a time saver as by the time you have boiled the water to create the steam and that went long enough to beat the egg, well I reckon it would have taken ages Ha!!
As I said the inventor must have been bored!!!!
