Q: We have a cast-iron wood-burning stove in our garage that we salvaged from an old cabin. The markings on it say, “Lakeside Foundry Co., Chicago, Ill., Bell-Wood, Windsor.” Can you tell us anything about it?

A: Lakeside Foundry Co. was in business from about 1902 until 1920, when the foundry was sold and the name became Lakeside Forge. Lakeside Foundry made stoves, bells, tableware and other items that were sold by Montgomery Ward. Windsor was one of the brands sold by Montgomery Ward.
