This is the 'Lady with the Lamp' whose impressive collection of 400 historic lamps has emerged for auction and is tipped to sell for £10,000.<br />
<br />
Pamela Barnes and her husband Kenneth have amassed a remarkable haul of 19th and 20th century railway, naval and mining lamps.<br />
<br />
It all started 50 years ago when Mr Barnes, 90, gave up smoking and decided he needed another 'bad habit'. <br />
<br />
The couple picked up the lamps at second hand shops and would take them in their caravan to rallies across the south of England.
