By 1907, he was living at Winnipeg where he was Manager of the Winnipeg Safe Works, located at 50 Princess Street. He lived at 966 Dorchester Avenue with my wife and their Manitoba-born children, Walter Frederick Hamilton Robinson (1906-1999, husband of Pauline Mary Letnes) and Evelyn Mildred Francis Robinson (1910-1995, wife of Thomas Henry Belt) until around 1911, after which they moved to 291 Kingsway.
