Another Lighting Order Prosecution

Hertfordshire Mercury, 4th December 1915


At the Hitchin Petty Sessions on Tuesday, Mr George Kryn, managing director of the Kryn Laboratory Metal Works, Letchworth, was summoned for contravening the Lighting Order by failing to have a light at his residence properly obscured or shaded on November 22.  He pleaded not guilty.  The evidence of Special Constable R. L. Trevor went to show that at 10.10 p.m. on November 22 he observed a bright light coming from the defendant’s house through a blind of glass beads, and he could see the globe, which was not shaded.  The witness had cautioned the defendant a week previously with regard to other lights.  Mr Kryn produced a photo of the house, showing that it was all surrounded by buildings, and if the light was shown there was no danger.  On being fined the defendant asked if he could not take the case to another Court.  He was very dissatisfied with the decision.
