Notes:

  • "Entre-temps, l'industrie des fonderies connait une autre grève. Le 23 mars 1875, les employés de la fonderie de Chanteloup cessent le travail plutôt que d'accepter un retour de la semaine de travail de soixante heures. (Depuis 1872, les ouvriers travaillent 54 heures par semaine et chôment le samedi après-midi. Il semble que Chanteloup vise à augmenter les heures de travail sans octroyer aucune augmentation salariale.)" —La formation des traditions de solidarité ouvrière chez les mouleurs montréalais: la longue marche vers le syndicalisme (1859-1881)
  • "Né en 1852, Joseph-Arthur Vincent se définit comme un «modeleur en argile, sculpteur en bois et spécialiste de travaux d'église». Il ouvre son atelier rue de La Gauchetière en 1879, après une dizaine d'années passées à la fonderie Ernest Chanteloup comme artiste dessinateur. Bien qu'il soit un sculpteur actif dans la région de Montréal à la fin du XIXe siàcle, l'étendue de sa production demeure difficule à évaluer, et on sait peu de choses à son sujet." —Momument a Jacques Cartier
  • Chanteloup is mentioned in the 1878 Paris Exhibition "Catalogue of the British Colonies", Works of Art, Class 7 (Organization and Appliances for Secondary Instruction): "Chanteloup, E.; Montreal, Q. School Desk." —archive.org

  • "Mulholland Point Lighthouse, a wooden octagonal tower standing forty-four feet from its base to the vane on its lantern, was completed in 1884, but its fixed white light was not exhibited until 1885. E. Chanteloup, a Montreal establishment that outfitted many Canadian lighthouses, supplied the lantern and lighting apparatus at a cost of $683.26, and Malachi Parker was hired as the first keeper of Mulholland Lighthouse. The towers light was shown from a height of sixty feet and was visible up to thirteen miles." —Mulholand Point Lighthouse, New Brunswick Canada (Lighthousefriends.com)
