Acme Glove Works Limited

Acme Glove Works is said to have been established in 1906 by Charles Godfroy DeTonnancour and J.D. Ouelette.

In Lovell's Directory of 1918-1919 and 1919-1920, the company's listing advertises the products they manufactured as follows:

Mitts, Gloves & Moccasins, Leather and Sheep Lined Coats as well as Knitted Goods such as Sweaters and Lumbermen's Socks. Shirts and Overalls and Larrigans round out the list of company products. According to www.thefreedictionary.com a larrigan is "a knee-high oiled leather moccasin boot worn by trappers, etc."

The Montreal factory was located at 236 Craig East and in 1918-1919 there were three other factories in Marieville, St. Tite and Three Rivers (Trois Rivières). A tannery in Joliette provided leather.

In 1919-1920, a factory in Joliette seems to have replaced the one in Three Rivers and an additional tannery was found in St. Tite.
