Magnet features an advertisement from 1870 promoting railroad lanterns manufactured by Crerar, Adams & Co. of Chicago, one forerunner of Adams & Westlake, today's Adlake.  (Also see Dane, Westlake & Covert magnet.)  Head lights for locomotives, hand and signal lantern, car and station lamps, brass domes, and car trimmings are featured.

The company was located at 11 & 13 Wells Street.  Since 1927 my hometown, Elkhart, IN, has been it's base.
