    • TAVISTOCK CARRIAGE & WAGGON WORKS: H. Diebel Proprietor

      This business was established in 1871, the building - a large two-storey frame structure - being previously used as a foundry. Mr. Diebel employs about a dozen hands the year round, and turns out a large number of vehicles of every description. A blacksmith shop is also connected with the above works and horse shoeing, etc., receives prompt attention. Mr. Diebel is a practical workman and superintends all work turned out. He also manufactures the celebrated porcelain lined pumps. Tavistock rigs have quite a reputation in the surrounding country, and seem to give the best of satisfaction generally. Last year it was found impossible to supply the demand. From $8,000 to $10,000 worth of work is turned out annually. The proprietor is an energetic business man and fully deserves the large share of patronage which he receives. Long may he continue to prosper.
