This patent model of an automatic gate has several pieces missing so I have been unable to identify the patent. There is a shaft on the left side with a cross member with ropes attached to each end to allow opening and closing the gate. It also appears that there was an additional cable that at the same time operated the latch.

Anyone have any ideas about the origin and the missing parts?
