    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: In 1891, he and his family were living in Fish Creek, AB. By 1901 they had moved to Kamloops and he was working in a sawmill. He worked as a photographer either alone or with his brother between 1911-1913, then formed Fierheller Brothers in 1914 which continued to operate until at least 1918. The 1920 Vancouver business directory gives his occupation as electrician. Prior to entering photography, Frank had worked as an apprentice painter and an electrician with Cope and Son. His death registration record gave his occupation as painter, which he last worked at in 1938. [15, 17]
