From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   L \L\ ([ecr]l), n.
      1. An extension at right angles to the length of a main
            building, giving to the ground plan a form resembling the
            letter L; sometimes less properly applied to a narrower,
            or lower, extension in the direction of the length of the
            main building; a wing. [Written also {ell}.]
  
      2. (Mech.) A short right-angled pipe fitting, used in
            connecting two pipes at right angles. [Written also
            {ell}.]

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   L \L\ ([ecr]l).
      1. L is the twelfth letter of the English alphabet, and a
            vocal consonant. It is usually called a semivowel or
            liquid. Its form and value are from the Greek, through the
            Latin, the form of the Greek letter being from the
            Ph[d2]nician, and the ultimate origin prob. Egyptian.
            Etymologically, it is most closely related to r and u; as
            in pilgrim, peregrine, couch (fr. collocare), aubura (fr.
            LL. alburnus).
  
      Note: At the end of monosyllables containing a single vowel,
               it is often doubled, as in fall, full, bell; but not
               after digraphs, as in foul, fool, prowl, growl, foal.
               In English words, the terminating syllable le is
               unaccented, the e is silent, and l is preceded by a
               voice glide, as in able, eagle, pronounced [be][b6]b'l,
               [?][b6]g'l. See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect] 241.
  
      2. As a numeral, L stands for fifty in the English, as in the
            Latin language.
  
                     For 50 the Romans used the Chalcidian chi, [?],
                     which assumed the less difficult lapidary type, [?],
                     and was then easily assimilated to L. --I. Taylor
                                                                              (The
                                                                              Alphabet).

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   L \L\, a.
      1. Having the general shape of the (capital) letter L; as, an
            L beam, or L-beam.
  
      2. Elevated; -- a symbol for {el.} as an abbreviation of
            elevated in elevated road or railroad. -- n. An elevated
            road; as, to ride on the L. [Colloq., U. S.]
