  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Clerk; Finisher; Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: She gave her occupation on her marriage registration record as photographer, the same line of work also appears in the 1920 voters list. In the 1920 Vancouver business directory, she's listed as a clerk at Camera and Arts; the following year she's listed as a photographer with the same employer and in 1922 she's listed as a finisher for Camera and Arts. The 1921 Canada census lists her as a finisher and has her immigrating to Canada in 1907 along with most of her family. She's appears not to have worked at photography following her marriage.
