Did this washer (and matching dryer) have a fluorescent lamp within the canopy/hood?

Seems to be buttons inside the right-side console endcap that could be for a light?

Yes! This '55 Hotpoint did have the fluorescent light within the hood.

What is really odd is the previous year 1954 10LK1 with a window lid!

The attached photos are poor scans/transfers from microfiche. Once COVID lifts in the next year or so I'll be able to scan the full Hotpoint automatic washer parts catalog with an archival microfilm/microfiche scanner.

According to the dealer literature, the light canopy was a separate option and was the difference between the  TOL model and the next one down.

Oh yes it is very odd and super rare but it seems in '54 Hotpoint did have a window lid on some models!
