  • Notes 
    • In 1908, Joseph Alfred Gendron (1840–1916) purchased the full lot along Wurtemburg Street and moved from Toronto where he was credited with the establishment of Gendron Manufacturing Company in that city. Famous for its bicycles that first used lightweight, wire-spoke wheels developed in Toledo Ohio by his brother, Peter, the company also produced
      baby buggies, wagons, and wheelchairs.

      En 1908, Joseph Alfred Gendron (1840-1916) a acheté le terrain le long de la rue Wurtemburg et avait quitté Toronto où il avait établi l’usine de la Compagnie Gendron dans cette ville. Cette compagnie, renommée pour ses bicycles, les premiers être équipés de roues rayons légères créées par son frère Pierre Toledo, en Ohio, produisait aussi des poussettes, des voitures et des fauteuils roulants [1]
