While today a No Smoking or No Spitting sign might be considered solely as a reminder of courteous behavior, this was not always the case.
The artwork on this mug is from an actual NYC Board of Health sign that was on display in subway stations from the 1910's - 1940's.
These lamps were used for signalling and general lighting purposes, in the same way as "globe" lanterns in N. JC; The round body Adlake lamps (switch, marker or signal) in the late 1890s that had the cap legs inserted down the mouth of the vent cone, were some of the first round bodied lamps railroads used. A model poses during the Abercrombie & Fitch flagship store opening on October 25, 2012 in Munich, Germany.
Selena Gomez was dressed down in frayed Levi’s shorts and a camisole while out and about in Malibu. You park your shiny scooter, slide your cat-eye sunglasses on top of your head, and lower the ruby pumps you wear beneath these cuffed capri jeans to the pavement, looking like a spread in a fashion magazine.
The collection has been curated from the fine details that India has to offer; embroideries, prints, embellishments, rich colors and fine gauze fabrics. Gwyneth’s wide-leg pants by Prabal Gurung complemented her sleek look at the Licensing Expo. Saskia wore brown-and-black striped trousers for a more preppy look at the Fendi store opening in Paris.
Public health in the crowded underground conditions of the subway had been a matter of citywide concern even before the opening of the original IRT system. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers.
The lamp looks to me like it might be a bridge or navigation light and not a trainman's lantern. This is what is left of a cheap import made in the last 20 years and avaiable in every import and junk shop in America.
It is interesting to note that the "Southeastern", as it was known after the Milwaukee Road acquired the line, ordered lanterns from both Handlan and Adams & Westlake. Handlan short globe lanterns were in fact painted silver and were not galvanized like ADLAKE KERO models. Handlans bails were usually very shody and looked like a 10 year old made them out of coat hangers.
This one has a Kopp (K in the circle) globe rather than a Corning globe, both of which were used by most railroads.
I doubt that any RR company ever issued that quality of item for daily use; just too expensive.
It does make sense then that overall, few of these were produced as compared to the standard tin lanterns. In spite of some "wear & tear", to be expected, since they are well over 100 years old, they are very attractive and historic lamps. The article is very interesting in that it divides colors into chromatic separation and how the eye sees the chromatics.
This top is decorated with a buttoned back keyhole, a heartwarming color scheme of red, white, and tones of blue, and folksy bouquets along its hemline.
When the gathering comes to an end, you step out into the night and let the subtle light of the moon and stars illuminate you in your celestial dress! In an era before effective treatments were available for tuberculosis or influenza, signs prohibiting smoking and spitting were installed in subway stations from the very beginning.

171570308109 on our favorite(?)auction web site for an inspection lamp that has the bullseye on the front of the globe and its prominently pictured with very good detail. Does the bail handle have a small loop right at the top of it which could be used to tie it with a rope? They're both tall globe handlans with twist off founts and are pretty much identical, but the chimneys are different. If you put a barn fresh Handlan short globe lantern into a hot bucket of lye the water turns silver.
If you want to shell out more money than you bought the lantern for, you can have them refinished.
I suggest taking those lenses out to see what is going on with the red color coming through the green lenses.
This is the only type of lamp made by Peter Gray that the N&W used as far as I have found in 40 years of collecting. Streaker was probably the dairy farmer and the tag identified him as the owner so that when the can was empty it could be returned to him. Replacement parts were available, so these would never wear out to the point of being discarded. It wasn't until the early 1900s when Corning Glass invested quite a bit of time, money and scientific investigation into producing colored glass of standardized color and reasonable clarity, that standardized signal colors were made available for railroad signaling.
About six months ago I found the patent information on the signal green color and cannot locate it again. As I recall, all of these unusual lamps were listed as being B&O, so my best guess is that this was a design unique to the B&O.
Your lamp represents the next easily noticeable design change with the legs on the outside of the vent cone. Though this looks like a railroad lantern, with the 'bird cage' around the globe, your lantern is a 'Utility' or 'Sewer' lantern; clearly identifiable by the oversize fuel pot base.


You pinch the layers of this tulle-touched skirt and curtsy in thanks, then hug your offerings close against this lined frock’s padded top, which boasts windows of mesh and floral eyelets atop a neutral pink backdrop. Exiting guests say their final farewells while complimenting the open, mesh back and center mesh detail in the front of the bodice.
Squire Vickers’ plan for the IND actually specified the design and placement of these standardized signs.
Tie down rings in the bail and on the base of a lamp are usually clues that it was meant for marine use.
So, my first question is were there any other Dressel models like this this that had clear globes, like an classification lamp on the white lenses signifying 'extra' or something?
When I cleaned up both my Pennsylvania rr handlans, I just tried to save as much as the original finish as possible, then sprayed the inside of the chimney with high temp. Some of the clues that it is a darkroom lantern are the yellow and red lenses and the shield which flips down to black out the flame without extinguishing it.
The N&W usually used Adlake cannonball electric switch lamps in the yards after they abandoned kerosene Armspear Lamps.
Searching Streaker and Sykesville leads to Oscar Streaker, and there is a street named "Streaker" in Sykesville, MD. Those circumstances made them instant 'family heirlooms' and many still reside on family mantles today. I used a inflation calculator to see what that would mean in today's world in 2014 compared to 1914, which was $140. I remember it was invented by a professor at Cambridge or Cornell University around 1906-08.
It was always a cobalt that allowed red to mix with the blue in spots creating the purplish color as observed chromatically by the human eye. Why the B&O fancied this particular arrangement is likely lost with the ages, or hopefully, buried in some bulletin a paper collector may have squirreled away somewhere.
The early 'round body' lamps were more air-tight than the old square body 'box-style' lamps. If you had any doubts about your statement-making style, just take a quick glance in the mirror – the illustrated black hands on your cream, relaxed-fit tee clearly point out that you deserve a thumbs-up!
And it is hard to tell how tall the lamp is from the photo, but it looks too tall to be a trainman's lantern. Railroads used these mostly because they provided extreme protection from weather and damage to the light fixture. It is 8.5 inches square and 21 inches high and contains its burner, red and amber panes of glass, and one damaged foot. Even allowing for retirement or award presentatons, compared to the common hand lanterns very few ever existed.
Even in 'the old days' those lanterns were expensive, and I can see why any railroad would rather settle for the standard 'tin lantern' to give to it's employees. You might try to do a search through the French patent office website, although I tried and information was only available if I had the patent date and not just the name that the patent was granted to Ferblantier is tinsmith, lampiste is lamplighter.
Signal Green itself has changed a bit over the years too; becoming a little lighter and clearer (less murky) so it would transmit more light, making the lantern light brighter. It also stated why this particular color was chosen in order to get as true a green as possible with a kerosene flame. As far as I know, the football shaped indentation extending above and below the green lenses are unique to these lamps as well. Pair this charming graphic top with patterned denim and laced boots, then head out to share its quirky positivity with everyone you meet!
The one pictured has a blank globe, the one not pictured that has the flat top says C T H & SE Ry. Have you found Dupli-Color in black to be equally good for restoring switch & marker lamps? In addition, electric flashlights became commonly available after 1900 so there was absolutely no reason to have a kerosene lantern to do the conductor's work inside a first-class passenger train which also had electric lights by then.
Maison Chatel Jeune Faucon made marine lanterns, I was able to find one shown at Collector's Weekly website but no information on it.
361012806635 ) , with the bullseye mounted on a bracket inside the globe rather than fastened to the globe surface. It is conceivable that a brakeman or other employee with too much time on his hands and access to green paint decided to personalize his lantern.
Back then, these paints were not available on the commercial market in the retail hardware stores. Your lamp is all braass, and has 4 bulleye clear lenses, a switch lamp should have some colored lenses and usually was made of steel. In contrast, the common kerosene hand lanterns were inexpensive (they are just stamped tin, after all)and they WERE issued by the companies, and they bought them and handed them out by the case (12 or 24 lanterns at a time)as they were lost, damaged, and wore out. I always wondered if this had to do with outdoor weather and surrounding vegetation involving color refraction with the color spectrum so it would not be mistaken for blue. Adlake used a dark blue green or teal color whereas Handlans color is more of a green blue or jade green. This allows red wave length absorbsipn, makes the flame appear white and only then allows the color blue to be seen with the eye. So this light might have been for some kind of portable service, or used on some other type of equipment that needed the functions without going to the more substantial model light. On the purple tested this pink color in the glass is left out allowing the red wave length to go thru, mix with the blue and allow that pinkish blue to go thru allowing the eye to see a purplish glow.


As I recall, some of the similar B&O lamps I've seen had those cap legs inserted down through the mouth of the vent cone and attached to the inside of the cone. The frame is not RR marked but the pair were obviously together for a long time when purchased at a local auction about 30 years ago.
Has anyone found anything close to the original finish that is available in a spray can today? I don't have access to lye, but the finish sure didn't come off with my lacquer thinner process, like it should if it was painted. A good photo of this lamp in use can be found in the book "N&W in the Appalachains: published by Trains Magazine along side a Z steam loco in Norton, VA. His Keystone Dry Plate Works was located in Philadelphia and that is probably what the wording in the keystone emblem on your lantern says. Also the same lamp is depicted in a Winston Link photo in several of his photo books and one is in color at night.
The knob between the 2 lenses, (both lenses were originally clear), controlled two colored roundels, usually green, that were in a holding bracket. They already conform to the government specifications and will have the number written below AAR Tested. My guess would be that the B&O official that chose this early standard design with four individual brackets, saw it as being very durable and less prone to problems than a lamp that rotated and needed to securely index and lock in position in a round bracket; as do the markers we are more familiar with. Compared to short globe lanterns of other major manufacturers Handlans do not hold up as well as a rule, which I suspect is attributable the use of lower quality metals and material in general. These roundels could be flipped in or out of position to indicate the class of train the locomotive was pulling. His photos and glass plates for Magic Lantern slides are well known for their high quality. White (clear) for an extra, unscheduled movement or green, indicating another section of the train was following. I'm curious as to how this lantern was used because even though it has a lot of conductor lantern traits it seems like more a functional display type lantern.
Research tells me that many of them were used in passenger car service as they were more attractive looking than the standard lantern which as we all know didn't have as nice an appearance when compared to the conductors lanterns, even when brand new.
There is a Handlan Lantern #112 that is shown as a railroad lantern in their 1918 catalog and hung on a elongated wall mounted hanger. The fancier passenger trains in those days were elegant to say the least, and the brass and nickeled conductor's lanterns fit right in. The history as I know it, my uncle used this lantern while he worked for the railroad out of or near Lindsay California.
The wall hanger bracket held the top of the bail with a hook and right around where the burner would be there was a spring loaded clamp that held the lantern body. What surprises me though is how few of them are out there to be bought and how few you would see in a typical collection. The old shades of green that you mention were gone by about 1914 on all American railroads as all American railroads had adopted the new standard colors from Corning by that time..
He lived and worked out of Lindsay California all his life, retiring from the Lindsay Packing (Lindsay olives you buy today) plant in his 60's after 30-40 years there. Most caboose lanterns only have one or two mounting brackets but this one has 4, one on each corner of the lantern.
So the question remains, if there are so few of those type of lanterns out there how likely is it that it was used in 'actual service' given that there were so many passenger trains, and many would have 1st class coaches? It has me confused as I've never seen one before and can find nothing in any books I have or an internet search. All I know is he used this lamp in the 50's, perhaps 60's, and could have been earlier; 40's? If I were to guess, I'd say that most were used in actual service, and the reason why there are so few of these lanterns in general is that they were used almost a century ago and many of them didn't survive to be in today's collections. The other possibility is that a previous non-railroad owner decided to light it with an electric bulb. This lantern seems similar to a #112 but because of the fat top on the dome I think it is from a much later time period.
Any lanterns used this way would likely have been stamped with company ID to try to keep them from wandering away.
The fount was a rusty 3" pinch pot, full of candle wax, no markings visible, but is same measuremwnts and fit as a marked Dietz 3" fount with a patent date of "Nov 25, 1890". I know most everything these days on the rr is 12v dc with switches being 24v or 110 ac in rare cases. The bail attachment shown in the pictures, (see link) may be the clue to who made this lantern, if anyone can recognize it.
But as far as the lamp goes it has been very professionally outfitted with a white round base with a regular house bulb. Because of that many roads removed the smoke stack portion of the upper lamp body and welded the original stack cap back on the body to seal it closed.
