Alexander McLeod – H. Shorey & Co., tailors (1899).

From: http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/shorey_hollis_12E.html

“…he was the largest producer in Canada and was selling across the dominion and into Newfoundland and the West Indies. He occupied a large six-story building at the corner of Notre-Dame and Saint-Henri streets where 125 tailors and cutters turned out pieces for 1,500 outside workers. But the firm was more a monument to Shorey’s enterprise and skill than a modern manufacturing company. By the early 1900s it no longer existed.”
