Railroad Portland & Rochester  
Size standard
Type single ring key
Condition Excellent

A wonderful Lock & Key Set. The Lock was made by Romer & Co in Newark, New Jersey and the reverse side of the shackle is clearly stamped H. Jones, Portland. The lock dust cover is tightly sprung. The lock has its original clevis and several links of hand forged chain. The key is a single Ring Bohannan with the large initials. Both the lock & key have an "S" for Switch. With a Portland, Maine supplier, this is clearly a Portland & Rochester lock & key set from the 1800s. Both are in Excellent condition.
