Walter William Clarke (1864-about 1916)

Henderson’s Greater Vancouver Directory, 1912, Part 1, page 657 [edited image].

 

I updated the page on Walter William Clarke. He was a journalist, sometimes known as “The Rambler.” He lived at 1872 Pendrell Street in 1912 and 1913.

Walter’s daughter, Alma, was a well-known pianist who was charged and acquitted in the murder of her architect husband, Francis Mawson Rattenbury.

I added illustrations and biographical information.

I updated the page on 1974 Georgia Street. It was one of four similar houses on the south side of Georgia Street, near the intersection with Chilco Street.

From 1909 to 1982, the Stuart Building was on this property.

I added a reference to the death of Stanley Ho, the wealthy casino operator from Macau who bought the property in 1974.

In 1982, Mr. Ho demolished the Stuart Building. A new structure appeared on the site in 1995.

I updated the page on William Alexander Campbell, who was a salesman with Dixon Motors.

He lived at 1900 Barclay Street in 1920 (although the directory listed him as “Wm. L. Campbell”).

I added illustrations and biographical information.
