Crookes Tube - Ghostbusting Equipment from "The Shunned House"

Exhibit PHY001 - Crookes Tube
Developed by physicist and spiritualist William Crookes, the Crookes tube would play an important role in the development of modern physics, including the discovery of x-rays, as outlined by this BBC report. Perhaps this is why they would be naturally considered as ghost busting equipment in Lovecraft's "The Shunned House."
