Reflectors

December 1, 1942

Miss Jeanette Kirrkamm, worker at the Westinghouse Lighting Division, powders while looking into one of the new mirror glass reflectors substituted for aluminum in yard lights for war plants.

By making this change, Westinghouse is conserving war-needed aluminum at the rate of 180,000 pounds a year and at the same time producing a light that throws out 10 percent more illumination.
