  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial; Finisher.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: During his time in Revelstoke he operated as Tourner and Thorpe (1912) and later managed the Trueman Studio there (1915).

      The business directories show him first working in 1921 for the photographer Walter H. Calder. By 1922 he was working as a finisher for Camera and Arts.

      His death registration records indicates he had lived in Vancouver since around 1917, had last worked as a photo finisher in 1943 and had spent his life in that occupation, chiefly working for the Eastman Kodak stores.
