There is not much known about this company from London & not many of their engines still in existance. At this time the engine in these photo's is the only B&P two cycle marine engine that is in running condition. The engine is almost an exact copy of the Detroit marine engine and should be noted that Detroit Engine Works had a company located in London just a few miles from the Boulton & Paul Factory under the Columbia Engine Co. name.  See Dave Carters website listed below for more information on the Boulton & Paul Co.

United Manufacturing Company, Little Giant engine.  Owner: Andrew Albrecht Cincinnati, Ohio.

The tag on this engine reads United Manufacturing Co. Detroit, Michigan. Little Giant 2 Hp Serial No. 2154. Who manufactured this engine? Could have been Detroit Engine Works, Termaat & Monahan, Caille or one of the other Jefferson Ave Companies at this point we are not sure but it doesn't look like the Little Giant engines that United Manufacturing Co. produced. This may be a example of a company purchasing engines from another engine company and re-tagging to sell.
