In search of correct lanterns

Post by dfairty1 » Sun Nov 04, 2018 5:00 pm

Does anyone know what the model number of the Gray & Davis lanterns on this car is? There is a great close-up pic.

I've attached a picture of my great grandfather in his Northern c1904/05 & they are the same lights. I've got Gray & Davis 819's on the car now. They are not original. See attached pictue.

I'm kind of guessing but maybe a No. 819 or 828? I have a G & D flat back (as opposed to the currently more popular bullet back) lamp but have not located it yet.

Try Carl Leonard. rocktoy4x4@aol.com He found a pair for me. Or Joe @ jps359@aol.com.
They can find anything apparently! Good luck!
