  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial (assistant).
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Born in Switzerland, he was listed as an "artist" in the Canada census on 18 Apr 1891. Borel appears to have been working or living with another artist named George Brett. Borel's age was 25.

      He apparently moved from Dunnville, ON, to Vancouver and worked in the latter city at White's Studio.

      Phillips (1990) shows Borel in Dunnville as a photographer between 1891 and 1900, but Phillips (1997) does not show him anywhere in Western Canada.
