  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial (assistant).
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: He was employed by the Bailey Brothers as a gilder-framemaker and photographer. The Vancouver paper announced his arrival in 1891 and noted that

      In addition to being a capital moulder and frame maker, [he] is a good photographer, and thus ably fills the place of Mr. Neelands, who has set up business with his bother in Nelson.
