  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: According to the 1926 Canadian Prairie provinces census, "Roland" Littlebury, his wife Mary and son Cyril had immigrated in 1912. This was not quite true, as a passenger list shows mother and son arriving in 1912 while the father had arrived in 1911 bound for Winnipeg with an occupation of printer and publisher. Cyril Littlebury moved to Vancouver from Calgary, with his father Arthur Hugh Rowland after his wife Mary died in 1927. Cyril is listed as a printer in the 1929 business directory at the same residential address as Arthur. Cyril and Arthur probably worked together as photographers in 1935-1936.
