To date there are 111 photos of all varieties of original lighting fixtures from 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s houses in our gallery of Vintage Midcentury Lighting. Over the next several days I’ll open the public uploader – and invite you to upload photos of either (1) the original lighting in your house or (2) the lighting that you have installed. For this gallery, let’s keep it to lighting installed in the ceiling – chandeliers, pendants and ceiling fixtures, as well as swag lighting. I’ll do a separate “lamps” collection at some point.

Upload photos of the lighting in your house, below… Tips:
- (1) Please be courteous and set your camera to no bigger than “medium” images, so files aren’t too large — large files really slow down the slide show and over time increase my costs to run this website.
- (2) Uploader DOES work but message you get on screen *may be* funky and confusing. Upload ONCE and trust the image it there — I just need to “set new photos free” from my control panel and will be checking hourly to do so.
Tips to view slide show: Click on first image… it will enlarge and you can also read my captions… move forward or back via arrows below the photo… you can start or stop at any image:
