They used to make things here, Watertown, NY.

The Babcock company built carriages in upstate New York beginning in 1845 and when the auto boom arrived they built specialty bodies for Ford, Dodge and various car manufacturers, including apparently three bodies for Deusenberg. 
They also built a car which they produced in small numbers from 1909 till 1913. The company was quite large, employing 4-500 people at the high point in the early 1920s. In 1925, the business began to dry up and closed in 1926. More here.
