I believe Lakeside was a store brand for Montgomery Ward. I bought a Lakeside saw last year that has beautiful etching on the sawplate.

I don’t believe the etching actually says Montgomery Ward, but it lists four of the six cities that were Montgomery Ward’s main distribution centers in the 1930s (in addition to Chicago, which was company headquarters).

Not proof that it is Montgomery Ward’s brand, but it tends to confirm what I’ve heard elsewhere.
