I bought this old can for $50 at an antique shop the other day. It's from the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad, and it was made by the Johnson Manufacturing Company in Urbana, Ohio. It stands about a foot tall. But that's all I know about it. I would love to know when it was made and what it was used for... I think it's a 'torch', but can't say for sure. Maybe someone out there can share some knowledge with me ???
