    • STATUS: Studio.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: The partnership of W.T. Milross and J. Wren. The studio, the first in Vancouver, inching out that of J.A. Brock and Company by a week or less, was destroyed in the disastrous fire of 13 Jun 1886. Losses were $500 and the company, unlike Brock and Company, did not remain in business. No photographs by Milross and Wren are known to have survived.
