Armspear 1925 Lantern, circa. 1925. This artifact is a post World War 1 Armspear Lantern. The 1925 model lantern was Armspear's introduction into the short globe lantern market. This would continue to be the major model in production by Armspear until production was contracted to the Adams and Westlake manufacturing company, who produced an Armspear line very similar to the Adlake "Kero" model of lanterns.
Stamped on the brim of this lantern are the initials N&W.RY signaling the use of this lantern by the Norfolk and Western Railway.
