"Dauchy & Co., Manufacturers of Patent Vault and Sidewalk Lights, etc., Nos. 125 and 127 Indiana Street. Among those Chicago firms whose productions have attained a national reputation owing to their superiority over all others, mention should be made of Dauchy & Co. the manufacturers of the Dauchy Patent Vault and Sidewalk Lights, and Vault and Coal Hole Covers. The extensive factory of this firm gives employment to a large number of hands, their goods being in constant and increasing demand. In spite of all competition the Dauchy lights have maintained an undeniable superiority. In this necessarily brief notice detailed mention of their various points of excellence is not practicable, nor is it necessary, as the goods of the house are regarded as essentially standard by the trade and general purchasing public." —Origin, Growth, and Usefulness of the Chicago Board of Trade: Its Leading Members, and Representative Business Men in Other Branches of Trade (1885)
