Hi from Australia guys, pray you are all safe with your families, I came by this AGM quite a while back and after a slow long battle I finally have it up and running, when I got it it did not have the original vent cap so I adapted a cap to fit, still living in hope of sourcing one, hey Otto, the filler cap you sent works a treat as does the lamp, here are three shots, excuse my lack of camera skills, regards Frank

Hi Frank, from a fellow Queenslander, in the far north of the state. 
I had to look up the Terry Marsh site to see what an AGM model 5 street lamp is supposed to look like.
Circa 1917. Wow, that is an old lamp, and one you don't see that often on this forum. Did you find it in Australia? I've come across quite a few AGM lamps and lanterns down in Oz.
Yes, a correct vent may be hard to come by, but you never know what will turn up.
You seem to have it working pretty good. Well done.

Keith.

Hi Keith, great to hear from a fellow Queenslander, yes I picked it up here in a lamp swap deal, I love my AGM lamps, I have quite a few now, I love the look of AGM'S, some have stress cracks to the tanks, but most of mine do not, it ran like new from the first fire up, very bright, and not a flicker, cheers Keith

Very interesting Lamp.  As someone new to the lamp/ lantern world, have a few basic questions.  How would it of been typicaly used?   Hung high on a pole? Or placed on the ground?   Did someone go around fueling, pumping lighting and hanging  each night?   How long is burn time.  It looks like a huge tank.   Wonder if these were used in the US much?

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the replies guys, my old Tassie mate to, Steve, i have a picture some where of an early picture of this street lamp being made ready to put a top a pole, there is a tube that is in the bottom of the tank running vertically up the center of the tank a few inches, when the lamp was lit it was mounted on the pole with the pole running up into the tube.

I guess there were people responsible for lighting an keeping the lamps running during night hours, i  think the tank holds about three 3 pints, so it would run at least 12 hours, i love AGM stuff, even with stress cracks, most of the lamps, lanterns i find from AGM in Australia are stress crack free,
thanks for the interest Guys, cheers Frank

Excellent.   Thanks for the information and education.   The old advertising was very descriptive.    Now somebody needs to find some vintage poles and set them up with the lamps.
