  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: In the 1901 England and Wales census he was living in Fairfield, Derbyshire, Eng., and working as a photographer. He immigrated from England in Jan 1910 with his wife Hettie and their two children via New Brunswick. He gave his occupation as photographer and destination as Toronto, ON. The 1910 business directory, however, shows him working as a photographer in Vancouver.
      After leaving photography he worked in real estate (1912, 1914) and then as a salesman for the Canadian American Securities Company (1913).
      According to the 1912 business directory, the office of the real estate company was his residence at 744 Helmcken.
      According to his death registration record he had been practicing portrait photography since 1920 and retired in 1940. [37]
