Notice biographique / histoire administrative
Avram (Abraham) Lazarus Florence (1875-1936) was one of Ottawa’s best known Jewish businessmen in his day. Born at Zadik, Lithuania A. L. Florence came to Canada in his early teens. For several years he lived in Hamilton then moved to Ottawa around 1900. Initially he was listed as a junk dealer in the Ottawa City Directory, living at 107 Dalhousie Street and operated his business at 75-77 Dalhousie. Eventually he specialized in supplying paper mills with used paper. The Government of Canada was a major client for the Florence Paper Company Ltd. In his obituary it was wrtten that the "paper industry is a tribute to Mr. Florence’s industry and enterprise, and one of the chief businesses in the factory district around Botelier Street on which the warehouses are located.” At one time the business was located on King Edward Street. Mr. Florence was a past president of the Agudath Achim Congregation, and was one of the prominent members of the congregation associated with the building of the Rideau Street Synagogue in 1912. He was also a strong supporter of the Hebrew Benevolent Society and the Ottawa Talmud Torah Board. He married Lena Pullan who died at the age of 45 in 1925. Ottawa Hadassah named a Lena Florence Chapter for her. They had three sons; Frank, Harry and Jack, and four daughters; Esther (married J. Smith), Rose (married Moses Doctor), Molly (married Alex Betcherman) and Freda. The three sons continued the business with Esther and Rose working in the office. Esther’s son, Avram Smith, also worked in the business. The Florences built a large home overlooking the Ottawa River near Earnscliffe, which was later sold to the Francisans who converted the home into a monastery. In 1985, the paper company was bought by Laidlaw Company.

Notice biographique / histoire administrative
Abe Hochberg (b. 1928- d. 2005) was the son of Yetta (b. 1896- d. 1977) and Nathan Hochberg (b. 1896-d. 1933). The Hochebergs immigrated to Canada from Poland in 1928, and first stopped in Montreal before settling permanently in Ottawa. Five years after their arrival, Nathan Hochberg passed away suddenly, leaving Abe along with his mother, and siblings Hy Hochberg (b. 1923- d. 1985) and Rose (m. Harry Goldberg) to fend for themselves and to tend the family's small lunch counter on Nicholas Street. As a teenager in the 1940's Abe became involved with the 39th Jewish Scout Troop (later renamed the 39th Henry Hank Torontow Scout Troop). Too young to enlist in World War II, he amassed 300 War Hours and more Proficiency Badges than any other of his fellow scouts. From the scouts he joined the Macabee Air Cadet Squadron. and later in the 1940's became a Scout Leader. In 1954, Abe took on the role of Director of the Sunday morning services for the Hanoar Breakfast Club. Abe was first employed by Joe Feller where he first got his start in the tailoring business. Abe went on to open his own men's tailoring shop named Gentleman's Fine Apparel, which was located at 204 Rideau Street.
