1,616,269 Feb H. LODGE COMBINED OUTSIDE LIGHT, MAIL BOX, AND HOUSE NUMBER Filed Aug. 28; 1925 Patented Feb. 1, 1927.

UNITED d'lfii'lES PATENT OFFICE.

Application filed August 28, 1925.

My invention relates to a new and useful improvement in 'a combined outside light, mail box and'house number, and has for its object to so construct such a device as to provide an illuminated mail box. Also to provide for the illumination of the porch where the box is mounted as well as to bring into prominent relief the house number.

WVith these ends in view, this invention consists in the details of construction and combination of elements hereinafter set forth and then specifically designated by the claims.

In order that those skilled in the art to which this invention appertains, may understand how to make and use the same, I will describe its construction in detail, referring by numerals to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this application, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective of an illuminated letter box and a housing for containing an electric lamp.

Fig. 2 is a centrevertical section of Fig. 1.

In caiuying out my invention as herein embodied, 10 represents a casing having a or other transparent partition 11 therein, which divides the interior thereof into the compartments 12 and 13. The compartment 12, is proportioned to serve as a letter box having a hinged top 1 1, which may be raised for the insertion of mail matter, and when closed will shed the water, and this mail box compartment also is provided with a door 15, which is hinged as indicated at 16; means being provided for locking the door against all unauthorized access to the contents of the mail box as indicated at 17.

The inner face of the door 15, is provided with a flanged frame 18, in which is set a transparent glass 19 in order that the interior of the box may be readily seen from tl e outside.

The walls of the compartment 13, have secured therein the glasses 20 and 21, and upon the glass 21, is painted or otherwise applied the number 22, which represents the number of the house where the box is installed.

28 represents a lamp, preferably an electric lamp, which is mounted inside of the Serial No. 52,986.

compartment 13, and when this lamp is lit, the light therefrom will shine through the glass 11 illuminating the interior of the letter box compartment 12, enabling ready observation to be had of the contents of the letter box through the glass 19. The light from this lamp will also illuminate the porch or space immediately surrounding the box and will likewise bring into bold relief the house number 22, as will be readily understood.

Any suitable fastening such as indicated at 24 may be carried by the box for its se-' curement to the space of the house or other object where the box is to be located.

Of course, I do not wish to be limited to the exact details of construction as herein shown as this may be varied within the limits of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of my invention.

Having thus fully described my invention what I claim as new and useful is z 1. A device of the character described comprising two compartments separated by a transparent partition, one of said c0mpartments adapted to be used as a letter box, the other compartment adapted to be used as a lamp housing, panes of glass in those walls of the compartments disposed in parallelism with the transparent partition, a pane of glass in one wall of the compartments disposed at right anglesto the partition, said pane of glass having a house number thereon, and a lamp in one of the com partments.

2. In a combined mail box, outside light and house number displaying device, a casing, panes of glass set in the walls of said casing so as to permit the free passage of light, a transparent partition dividing the interior of the said easing into two compartments of different widths, a lamp mounted in the larger of said compartments, a door carrying a glass forming a closure for the smaller of said compartments, a hinged lid covering an opening in the top of the smaller compartment, and means for mounting the casing from the wall of the house.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto aliixed my signature.

HARRY LODGE.
