Work locations | Samples | Sources

Born in Ontario in February 1878, he was working as a photographer at Crystal City when, in 1908, his studio was taken over by Albert E. Morrish. In 1909, he inspected a photographic gallery at Boissevain but it is unclear if he operated it. At the time of the 1911 census, he was working as a photographer at Vancouver. His whereabouts after this time are unknown.
