Vintage Ray-O-Vac Flashlights
On the right we have the 1920-1921 French Ray-O-Lite 2 D cell flashlight, in the middle we have the 1920-1921 French-Ray-O-Lite 3 D cell, next to that, the 1920-1921 C cell and the 1915 French Flasher 2 C cell with the unique triangle switch. The Ray-O-Lite flashlights have the 3 rivet slide button switch.
Started out as the French Battery and Carbon Company in 1906. (aka: French). The brand name was changed to French Flasher in 1914-1915. The brand name was changed to Ray-O-Lite in 1920. Then another brand name change to Ray-O-Vac in 1922 and the French changed the company's name to the Ray-O-Vac Company in 1934 as it's know today.
I added a gallery of Ray-O-Vac flashlight displays from the 50's. Also a few pages from the Captain Rav-O-Vac Comic/Adventure book, also from the the 50's. View Here
