6.13. Stanfield's Unsinkable Underware,

From Wool to Cotton

"Charles E. Stanfield had no idea when he immigrated to America in 1855 that he would found the firm that is a leader in its field today. Charles, along with his brother-in-law Samuel E. Dawson, founded the Tryon Woolen Mills in Tryon, P.E.I. in 1856. Charles sold his interests to Samuel in 1866. Charles, after spending a year or so in Charlottetown, then left for Truro, Nova Scotia.

In 1870 Charles founded the Truro Woolen Mills (opposite the present railway station), which was believed to be the first factory of its kind in Canada. In succession, Charles built the St. Croix Woolen Mills at St. Croix, Nova Scotia...The Union Woolen Mills at Farnham...Truro Felt Works, near the Pictou crossing on Prince Street...finally locating at the present site on the banks of Salmon River in 1882."
