The image above was taken in an unknown year at the original manufacturing site of Watson Gloves — on East 2nd Avenue, just west of Main Street. I was walking in that neighbourhood this afternoon and spotted the entry to Watson’s former facility (image below).
The business was started by John Watson and Wayne Stanley in 1918 and has been operating ever since. Since 1933, the business has been operated by the Moore family. The factory moved from East 2nd Avenue, Vancouver to 7955 North Fraser Way, Burnaby, in 2007.
