It might be Detroit Auto Marine Engine Company, which was active in 1906-07. Other folks might have photos or illustrations to match it.
Detroit Auto Marine Company was a marine gasoline engine manufacturer located at 66 East Congress Street in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan, in 1906. It became Detroit Gas Engine & Machinery Company in 1907. The company forfeited its charter and filed notice of its dissolution on February 14, 1907.
