  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: In the 1911 Canada census his surname was recorded as "LeBlonde"; his immigration date appears to be either 1901 or 1908. The 1921 Canada census notes that he immigrated in 1901.
      A Canadian passenger list shows he arrived in Montreal, QC, from Glasgow, Scotland, UK, on the Sardinian on 16 May 1903. He gave his occupation as "artist" from Surrey, Eng., UK, and his intended destination as Shoal Lake, possibly in Manitoba. An Apr 1910 Canadian passenger list showing his arrival in Halifax, NS, indicates he is a returning Canada employed as a "photographer in Canada" and that he had been in BC for six years. He had been in England getting married.
      He operated under the name Vernon Photo Company in the 1910s, then under his own until he passed away in 1943. [17, 18, 19]
