115-volt light plant

| February 2006

I purchased this light plant a year ago at an auction. We are in the process of restoring it. There are no markings or identification on the engine. The only markings are on the generator. The generator is a Sterling direct current generator, 115-volt, 10.8-amp made by Sterling Electric Motor Co. of Dayton, Ohio. I'd like to know the manufacturer of the light plant, any history, the year of manufacture and also in what capacity the light plant was used.
