If you have information to add to this entry, please contact the Site Historian.

In 1905 the Dymond Gas & Engine Co. was incorporated with a reported $1 million in capital. The business was liquidated in early 1912 and the capitalization was reported to be $100,000. In between, they made gas and gasoline engines plus gas-producing plants for gas lighting. They kept a very low profile and so far we have not found any ads or articles.
