Navigation beacon and strobes in the past were simply high intensity bulbs.

I was spotting over at BWI about a week ago and saw a DC-9-30 from DTW come in. It looked cool in the old NWA colors, but that's beside the point. Unless I was crazy and saw things, it didn't have normal flashing wingtip strobes. Instead, they seem to rotate back and forth similar to the acl. Was this how the early strobes were?

I saw them on a DC-8 freighter yesterday at DFW.
