It is interesting to note that in the book -- History of Chicago, Volume 1 by Alfred Theodore Andreas (1884-86 edition) -- the author mentions, under "Street Nomenclature", a street named: "Dinet, after J.Dinet (this street is extinct)".
In the 1863 map of Chicago: shows Dinet Street:
Dinet Street (was an east/west street) is shown located just south of North Avenue, between Elston Avenue and McHenry (now changed to Throop Street) --- see map coordinates 3C.
Also see: WhatWasThere
This may also be related information; a Joseph Dinet, according to these Chicago Directories, lived within a short distance from J. Dinet building:
1866 & 1870 -- 391 Milwaukee Avenue ( 727 adjusted for 1909 address change)
1871 -- 391 & 393 Milwaukee Avenue ( 393 changed to 729 adjusted for 1909 address change)
1880 -- 547 Milwaukee Avenue ( 879 adjusted for 1909 address change) Dinet occupation jeweler.
Also, I found this from other sources:
Joseph Dinet was born in France. (1871 Directory)
Joseph Dinet, was a "prominent candy manufacturer."
Joseph Dinet died in 1884, leaving an estate worth $300,000.
