  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: According to one obituary, he arrived in Vancouver in 1891. His listing in one directory said "photographer" at Freeman's [R.H. Trueman ?]. There were, however, no corresponding listings for a Freeman in 1897. He left photography between 1898-1901 and returned to it after the turn of the century when he may have worked for or with C.M. Scott; they shared the same business address in 1903.

      Selwood was a prominent rose grower and first president of the Vancouver Rose Society at its founding in 1947. He also edited the society's publication Rosebud (1949-1973).
