Magnet features an advertisement from 1870 promoting lanterns manufactured by the Dane, Westlake & Covert company of Chicago, one forerunner of Adams & Westlake, today's Adlake.  (See my other listings for a magnet of another, Crerar, Adams & Co.)  The kerosene Sun Lantern and the new Westlake loose globe lanterns are featured, along with railroad and marine signals and such services as metal spinning and glass engraving.

The company was located at 95 Michigan Avenue.  Since 1927 my hometown has been it's base, Elkhart, IN.
