Default Re: Lamp adapter query.

I think that was exactly it - 2 spare bedrooms in the family house rented out to students, with slot meters on the sockets I believe.

No idea what the wiring was like then, it was an old Victorian 3-story in London, so I assume my father had just metered the socket(s) in each bedroom, and left the lighting as it was. It was in the pre- central heating days, so plug in heaters etc. were much more common, but obviously expensive to run.
