Les sources de cette liste incluent : Dossiers de service, Bibliothèque et Archives Canada; Mémorial virtuel de guerre du Canada; Great Canadian War Project; List of Officers and Men Serving in First Canadian Contingent; McGill University Honour Roll; Le journal The Lachute Watchman

 

Un très grand merci à Leslie Parker pour son travail acharné et ses recherches pour cette liste.

 

Guide de la liste :

 

† Morts au combat ou mort de blessures ou mort à la suite de la guerre.

 

Un nom suivi d’une ville ou d’un village indique que la personne vivait à cet endroit. Un nom suivi de «br.» indique que la personne est née dans la ville ou dans une localité, mais qu’elle vit ailleurs.

 

Un astérisque * indique qu’il s’agit de l’orthographe / de l’information telle qu’elle apparaît sur les documents d’archives et ne reflète pas nécessairement l’orthographe actuelle.

 

NOK signifie « plus proche parent ».

 

Un nom seulement ou un nom suivi de « honour roll » ou de « The Lachute Watchman » indique que d’autres recherches sont nécessaires.

LAITERIE LOWE

Cette semaine, nous vous présentons des souvenirs de la Laiterie Lowe de Lachute qui opère toujours sa fameuse crèmerie sur la rue Principale!

Laiterie du Québec résume bien l’historique de la laiterie Lowe : « La laiterie familiale fut fondée en 1944 par les frères Emmett et Jim Lowe. Peu de temps après, les trois autres frères, Bernard, Clifford et Hughie se sont joints pour assurer le bon fonctionnement de la laiterie qui était située sur la rue Principale à Lachute. Avec quatre employés, les cinq frères étaient en mesure de vendre plus de 700 pintes de lait par jour. Au début la livraison se faisait en voitures à cheval et par la suite, les camions prirent la relève. La livraison se faisait à l’année, sept jours par semaine.

Vers le milieu des années 40, ils ont rapidement commencé à faire une série d’acquisitions des petites laiteries de la région. Ces acquisitions ont permis à la « Laiterie Lowe » de progresser très rapidement.

Par la suite, en 1983, les opérations ont été fusionnées avec la « Laiterie Casavant » de St-Jérome. En 1990 « Agropur » fit l’acquisition de la « Laiterie Casavant » pour l’incorporer à « Natrel » en avril 1990 et depuis octobre 1991, les activités de production ont cessées. Seule une petite fabrique de crème glacée est toujours opérationnelle et ses produits sont encore vendus sous le nom de Lowe. »

NOTE: 

Bonjour, une de nos lectrices de notre dernière perle sur la laiterie Lowe mentionne la place importante qu’avait madame Lydia Lowe, sœur des frères Lowe, dans l’entreprise. Malheureusement, nous n’avons pas de photo de Madame Lowe dans nos archives. Si certains d’entre vous en avez, nous vous invitons à les poster. Merci!

 

*******************

This week, we are presenting memories of the Lowe Dairy in Lachute, which still operates a creamery (ice cream shop?) on Main Street.

Laiterie du Québec resumes its historic: ‘’ This small family dairy all began in 1944 with the association of two brothers, Emmett and Jim Lowe. Shortly afterward, three other brothers, Bernard, Clifford and Hughie, joined in to assure a good operation of the dairy, which was situated on Main Street in Lachute. With the help of four other employees, the five brothers were able to sell well over 700 quarts of milk a day. At first, deliveries were done with horse drawn wagon and soon after trucks were necessary. The deliveries were done seven days a week all year round.

With the purchase of several small dairies in the area in the 40’s, the dairy was able to increase it’s volume year after year.

In 1983, the dairy associated itself with « Casavant Dairy » of St-Jerôme, in a joint operation. In 1990, « Agropur » acquired « Casavant Dairy » and incorporated with « Natrel » in April of the same year. Since October 1991, all production has ceased. Today, Lowe still produce ice cream. It is the only production kept by this ancient dairy.’’

NOTE:

Hello, one of our readers of our latest pearl on the Lowe dairy mentions the important place that Mrs. Lydia Lowe, sister of the Lowe brothers, had in the company. Unfortunately, we do not have a photo of Mrs. Lowe in our archives. If some of you have some, we invite you to post them. Thank you!

Ouverture officielle du Musée, le 24 juin 1939.

Brochure de l’ouverture officielle du Musée de la Société historique du comté d’Argenteuil dans l’ancienne caserne de Carillon (Old Carillon Barracks), le 24 juin 1939.

Le bâtiment a été généreusement donné à la Société historique en 1937 par le propriétaire de l’époque, Monsieur Felix Hungerbuhler afin qu’il soit utilisé comme Musée et restauré à cette fin par la Société d’histoire et le gouvernement fédéral.

À cette époque, les frais d’admission étaient de 10 cents pour les non-membres et gratuit pour les membres et les enfants accompagnés d’un adulte. Il était possible de visiter, entre autres, la cellule de prison du sous-sol, une salle dédiée à l’exposition d’artisanat canadien et la bibliothèque commémorative Benjamin Wales.

Brochure of the official opening of the Museum of the Historical Society of Argenteuil County in the Old Carillon Barracks on June 24th, 1939.

 

The building was generously donated in 1937 by its then owner Mr. Felix Hungerbuhler to the Historical Society for use as a Museum and restored for this purpose by them with the assistance of the Federal Government.

 

At that time, the admission fee was 10 cents for non-members and free for members and school children under the care of an adult. Visitors could see, among other things, the old Guard Room and Prison Cell in the basement, a room devoted to Canadian Handicrafts exhibits and the Benjamin Wales Memorial Library.

 

Années 1940.

Affiche du Musée historique du Comté d’Argenteuil datant probablement des années 1940.

 

On sait qu’elle est plus récente que la brochure précédente (1939) puisque la construction de la clôture blanche est terminée et la voiture dans le coin inférieur gauche nous porte à croire qu’il s’agit des années 1940.

 

********************

Poster of the Museum, probably from the 1940’s.

 

We know the picture of the Museum on this poster was taken before the one on the brochure (1939) because the fence is completely finished and the car in the lower left corner seems to be from that era.

 

Années 1940.

Affiche du Musée datant probablement de la même époque que la précédente, indiquant également qu’un « thé » est servi à prix raisonnable.
