Located in the Beauport borough, Rue Deschamps is named in honour of Jean-Baptiste Deschamps (1897-1989), founder of J.B. Deschamps printers. Inaugurated in 1926, the printing company still exists on the corner of Boulevard des Chutes and Rue Deschamps and is known as Deschamps Impression. The building has been enlarged several times.
