L. & N. SPECIALTIES
The only products at the Dubuque plant as it opened were mens' and ladies' leather gloves. Within a short time, however, the other items manufactured by the company were also to be manufactured here. One of the company's major products was a leather driving glove of chamois-like material made from the imported hides of the Peggary hog, an animal native to South America. The entire production from Dubuque would be sold to the retail trade through Chicago agents. (2)
