Default Wireless encyclopedia Radio/room light!!

I came across some old 1920's magazines (Harmsworths wireless encyclopedia) and when reading a few bits I found a design for a combined radio and room light powered by batterys under the floor above. However bright were the valves in it and how loud would it have been to fill a room. I have photographed all the pages of the design if anyone fancies building it

The pictures are here

Love it, bright emitters would have to be used to make it practical, at least as a lamp. I can just imagine the required lead acid accumulator falling through the ceiling.
