    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: According to the 1911 census when he was living in Indian Head, SK, and working as a photographer, he immigrated in 1905 and by 1911 was a naturalized Canadian citizen. He was lodging with Adam and Alberta Davidson. The Jul 1905 passenger list in which he is listed spells his name Denison. His place of birth is listed as England, his occupation as photographer and his destination from Quebec City, QC, as Toronto, ON. In the 1921 Canada census when he was living in Vancouver he is married to Clara May Denison and immigrated in 1903.

      Prior to becoming a Vancouver photographer he worked as a demonstrator for the Canadian Kodak Co. in Vancouver. In 1917 he took over the Artona Studio and operated it until at least 1923.
