History Lesson thanks to google:
Belding Paul Co the first Belding Paul Co., the first silk mill in Canada, set up shop near the Lachine Canal in 1884. It would later merge with Corticelli from Saint Jean-sur-Richelieu. Silk ribbon was made and later, nylon stockings. The workforce was made up mostly of women. After closing in 1982, the factory was converted into condos.
Belding, Paul and Co. merged with Corticelli in 1911. Formerly a silk manufacturing factory, it has been recently renovated into residential space (1989).
