Research Facts
Owned and used by Nursing Sister Lt. Miriam Hartrick during World War II. Miriam (Hartrick) Kelly (1909-2001) graduated from Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing in 1931. She served in England, France and Italy during World War II. "C" with broad arrow denotes Canadian Army issue.
Dominion Textile was formed in 1905 from the merging of four smaller Canadian textile companies. It held a near monopoly in the mid/early twentieth century because of trade tariffs, but in 1948 duties on cotton goods from the U.K. and the U.S. were almost entirely eliminated, resulting in serious competition to Canadian industry. The company became rebranded as "Domtex," and closed in 1998.
