  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: When he first married in 1926 at age 19 he gave his occupation as photographer. By the time of his second marriage in 1943 he was in construction.

      He was first listed in the 1923 BC directory as working for a druggist firm, Merryfield and Dack, as a messenger. He continued to work as a messenger the following year, but for the Maynard and Stewart Photo Supply Company (A.H. Maynard and P.G. Stewart). In 1925 he continued to work for Maynard's photo supply company as a clerk. In 1926-1927 he was working as a photographer, but for whom (likely not self-employed) has not been determined. He went back to working for A.H. Maynard as a salesman between 1928-1930 and then became a driver for Veterans Sightseeing and Transportation Company Ltd. He worked again as a photographer between 1932-1935.
