Mule Mining Lamp

Description (Brief)
The Koehler Manufacturing Company produced this battery-powered lamp during the first half of the 20th century. Inventor Grant Wheat designed the lamp. The leather strap around the battery pack and lamp would be hung on the mule to light the way ahead as it pulled its load out of the mine.
