Preservation Photos #181


Have you considered the details of historic buildings, such as this lock on a railroad building? They don’t make them like they used to! Details are just as important as the actual structure.

    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.
