What I learned from a google search…
“Adlake” or Adams & Westlake, the company that made this lock, started as a RR supply manufacturing company in 1857. They remain in business today, having diversified as a supplier to other transportation modes. They are located in Elkhart, IN. Building on their interest in railroads, they serve as a resource for individuals and groups that are restoring old railroad cars.
Thanks for the research, Ann! I’ll pass it on to the owners of the building.
