Domspeco wrench

I don't know what "Domspeco" stands for, but a good guess would be the Dominion Specialty Manufacturing Company of Rock Island, Quebec.  If so, this company, founded in December 1898, lasted exactly two years before being renamed the Telford & Chapman Manufacturing company.  One of their premier products was horse blankets, which I don't think call for the use of wrenches, so maybe this isn't an example of their merchandise.
"We have passed the time when people must have an article just as used by their fathers and a new thing if better than the old is quickly in demand."

Progress is fine...
