RARE 1895 Adams Westlake Railroad Lantern F&CCRR CS&CCD Colorado Cripp

RARE 1895 Adams Westlake Railroad Lantern F&CCRR CS&CCD Colorado Cripple Creek

EARLY COLORADO RAILROAD HISTORY

Prairie Wind Antiques is pleased to offer this rare railroad lantern, found in a Wyoming estate.

It is being sold exactly as found. All I did was dust it and clean the outside of the globe.

I have not opened or disassembled it.

It is an Adams and Westlake lantern, patented May 28, 1895.

The frame is marked F & C.C.R.R for the Florence and Cripple Creek Railroad.

There is a small metal plate on the frame with the number 242 on it, perhaps an inventory, workman, or engine number?

The globe is embossed C.S.& C.C.D. for the Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek District Railway.
