Sugg Lighting are manufacturers of lighting columns and lanterns. They are listed here because they have been going since 1837 and still manufacture gas lighting. However, these days they have extended their product range to cove the new electric light.

Osram GEC Photo Archive (UK)
Read about what was once the largest factory floor in the world and see rare archive images of what it was like in its heyday. The author, once an employee there, gives in interesting insight into working at the factory.
I’m not going to list all the manufacturers here but this one is worth a mention. BELL are one of the few independent British manufacturers still manufacturing lamps. They have been doing so for over 80 years so lets hope they keep doing so.
