I found this item at a garage sale and thought it was interesting. I can't, however, find anything on Adams Pittsburgh, or any similar looking item. It appears old and has a handle.

Any information on it as to who might have used it, ie. coal miners, railroad, etc., would be appreciated.

    Goss Gas, Inc. sold appliances under the Adams brand.
    The Adams Sports Heater provides hot air from the rectangular duct near the top front of the unit.
    The Sports Heater can be converted to a stove by sliding it out of the case; note the grate above the burner. Brien Page also has an optional Adams Sports Lite that fits on the burner of the Sports Heater to convert the stove into a lantern.
    Goss also sold the Model 152 stove and lantern combination appliance separately.
