    usual crop of cheap and nasty fixtures which were doubtless bought in quantity by unsuspecting customers who knew nothing about the subject With the earliest gas jets being formed from holes drilled in iron pipes corrosion could quite quickly increase the size of the jet and thus the amount of gas consumed Possibly William s first really important patent was for the non corrodible jet made of steatite a naturally occurring ceramic which could be turned on a lathe and then fired to achieve an extreme hardness In classic style the waste powder from this exercise was compacted into tins and sold as Pearly Queen tooth powder doubtless sufficiently abrasive to remove more than just the normal level of dirt The demand for ever increasing levels of illumination on the streets could only be achieved by increasing the number of gas jets burning in the lanterns These open flame lanterns grew and grew to allow for the enormous heat produced by up to 20 jets EARLY LOGO ON LAMPOST IN HYDE PARK 20 Light open burner 7 feet tall open flame lanterns from 1880 s The lanterns illustrated above reached 7ft in height and 46 across requiring substantial and imposing lamp posts to support them Meanwhile the electrical industry had been developing Although the early arc lamps could produce huge amounts of light they were very unreliable and expensive to run The invention of the gas mantle turned the tables on the electricians retaining the lead of gas for street lighting for something like another 50 years They also provided the death knell for the enormous lanterns This is why they are so rare today The well known Windsor lantern introduced by William Sugg in 1898 was the first lantern designed specifically to use the gas mantle Sugg s had
