Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Henry D bs, born Heinrich D bs, was a German-born British businessman and engineer who founded D bs and Company, at one time the second largest locomotive manufacturer in Britain. Born in Guntersblum near Darmstadt, Germany, D bs was apprenticed to a machine tooling business. At the age of 21, having gained further experience in Mainz and Aachen, he had become a machine shop manager. He moved to England and was appointed as works manager of the Vulcan Locomotive Company Foundry near Warrington, Lancashire, in 1842, at which time he anglicised his name to Henry D bs. From 1842 - 1858 D bs appears to have worked for the Lancashire locomotive builders Beyer-Peacock in Manchester. He lost his position as works manager in 1857 for reasons which may have had to do with his managerial style rather than his technical abilities.show more
