Adams & Westlake lanterns (Adlake). The Adlake Kero Lanterns, produced by Adams & Westlake Lanterns, were some of the most common railroad lanterns in use in the early 1900's. Before the advent of portable two-way radios, train crews communicated via hand signals during the day, and lantern signals during periods of low visibility or at night. For Example, lanterns with red globes were used by station agents to signal a train to stop. The main feature of the A&W Kero made from 1930 to about 1935 is that the lantern has a completely flat wire bottom, unlike all of the later Kero's.
The bottom ring is the same as the one in the Adlake #200 and #250. This lantern was likely used on the Southern Pacific Railroad (as noted by the SP marking) in the early 1900's.
