  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: The 1921 Canada census records that he immigrated in 1903 and was married. When he was married in Vancouver he was living in Nanaimo and working as a miner, which is borne out by the 1911 Canada census.
      In between stints as a photographer he worked as a labourer and salesman. While his death registration record states he last worked as a photographer in 1939, the business directory show him working as a photographer between 1942 and past 1950. Since no employer was ever shown in the business directories, he may have been self-employed and worked out of his home.
