I updated the page on Jonathan Rogers. He was a real estate developer, contractor, park board commissioner, city councillor and supporter of civic institutions. His wife, Elisabeth, was a generous philanthropist and supporter of many organizations in Vancouver, including the Symphony Society and the Vancouver Art Gallery. Jonathan and Elisabeth lived at 2050 Nelson Street from 1910 to 1945, and Elisabeth continued to live at 2050 Nelson Street until 1960.
