Read, Gleason & Read

Brooklyn, NY (The Railroad, Telegraph, Electric and Steamship Builders' Buyers' Guide, 1897)

H. F. Read & Co. is the first instantiation of the company we find, in 1854.  Probably in the early 1880s the company reorganized as Read, Gleason & Read.  The company appears to fade out in the early 1890s but we do find them in one listing in 1897.

All patents were awarded in 1882.
