Place of Origin

Maker handlan St. Louis

Maker Details The Handlan-Buck Company of St. Louis was one of the premier suppliers of railroad lamps, lanterns, and other hardware. Tracing a corporate history back to 1856, the company was both highly respected and patronized by railroad companies, with its strongest markets being the Midwest and West. The company was particularly known for lighting devices that used combustible fuels like kerosene. However, after World War Two, railroads increasingly phased out such kerosene-powered devices in favor of electrically-powered ones.
