Title
'Said To Be A Very Honest Jew': The R.G. Dunn Credit Reports and Jewish Business Activity in Mid-19th Century Montreal
Abstract
An examination of the role of Montreal's Jewish community in the city's economic development between the 1840s and the 1870s. Based on credit reports, this study reveals that Jewish businesses were concentrated mainly in the retailing of jewellery and fancy goods, tobacco and drygoods, and in clothing manufacturing.
