Historic

The "Lovell's Montreal street directory" of 1923 indicates for
the first time this building at 767 St-James where is located
a garage: the "Franklin Montreal Motors LTD".

Then in 1930, the same directory indicates a new address:
the 1405 St-James, but the premise is now occupied
by "Garage Chauvin".

In 1935, the business becomes a "machine shop".
The "L. De Jean & Co. Machinists", established in 1909,
settled at 1020 Lagauchetière W. will move in until the
end of the century.
Better located, opposite the "CN freight yard"
where were machined parts of the locomotives for
the CN, the "Canadian National Railways".

In early 2000, the building is acquired by the Veronneau
family and meticulously restored during 2009-2010.
In December 2010 everything is in place for the project:
"Alexis Le Gourmand" gourmet grocery is born and
will give to this residential part of Montreal centre-sud
a new boost. Future will tell...

Note: In the "Montreal atlas" of 1915, the
"St-Antoine market" is located one block east.
