From the acquisition of the American Flyer train product line in 1938, the A. C. Gilbert Company included street lamps in the cataloged product line. Several models were developed over the years along with those inherited from the American Flyer Manufacturing Company in Chicago.
Only included in the 1938 Gilbert American Flyer catalog, the No. 2210 De Luxe Lamp Post was fabricated with sheet metal and enamel painted. Clearly a continuation of the Chicago Flyer product line, it complimented the larger O gauge trains that also came from Chicago Flyer.
