  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Retail sales.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Based on information in an Ancestry.ca family tree, between 1905 and at least 1916 he lived in Manitoba, mostly Winnipeg, where he worked as a photographer.
      He was employed by the Cranham Photo Company in the 1920 business directory, likely in a sales capacity. The 1921 Canada census has an occupation of "photographic agent," meaning a photography sales person. While the 1928 Vancouver provincial voters list indicates some kind of association with photography, the business directories from 1922 to 1930 show him as a sales person, chiefly with the Beatty Brothers, a firm which sold agricultural equipment and washing machines.
