Harry Hemming was a saloon proprietor and an inventor. He lived at 1888 Beach Avenue in 1904.

Harry Hemming was born on October 12, 1870 (some sources say 1871), probably in Leamington, Warwickshire, England (some sources say he was born in Ireland). It appears that his parents were John Hemming and Sarah Ann Smith.

In 1871 and 1881 Harry was living with his parents in Leamington.

According to one source, he travelled to North America when he was sixteen. He found work as a carver at the Queen’s Hotel in Toronto, Ontario. In the 1891 Canada census, he was in Toronto, working as a groom.

He apparently went to New York City, where he worked at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. He later moved to western North America, working in hotels in various locations.

In 1899, while Harry was living in Lewiston, Idaho, he became a naturalized United States citizen.

At some point he married Frances Adelaide Curtis, who was born in Belleville, Ontario, on July 23, 1874. Her parents were William and Amelia Curtis. Harry’s and Frances’s first child was born in Lewiston, Idaho, on February 9, 1900.

Harry first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1901. He was living at 552 Granville Street, working as a bartender at the Strand Hotel at 624 West Hastings Street.

In 1902, Harry was planning to take over the Board of Trade Saloon at 512 West Hastings Street. He needed approval to transfer the operating licence from Alex Smith, the previous proprietor. Mr. Smith’s creditors initially objected to the transfer.

It appears that the problem with the creditors ended fairly quickly. By 1903, Harry was the operator of the saloon.

The 1908 Vancouver directory indicated that Harry was retired. If he was, his retirement did not last long. By July 1908 he was taking over management of the Driard Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia.

In August 1910, Harry received a patent for a device to file advertising pamphlets.

This invention relates to a cabinet for filing advertising circulars or the like, such as are sent out by States, municipalities, railway companies and hotels for the use of the traveling public.”

In October 1910, Harry sold his patent rights to a group of investors.

From 1912 to 1915, Harry was the manager of Public Information Distributors (sometimes called P.I.D. Ltd.). (This appears to be the company that took over the distribution of Harry’s invention for filing pamphlets.)

In 1913, Harry went to England. He sailed back to North America on the Mauretania, arriving in New York City on July 18, 1913. He described his occupation as “hotel proprietor.”

In 1914, Harry and Frances appeared in the Vancouver society directory. Harry was a member of the Terminal City Club.

The Hemmings moved to New York about 1919. By 1920 they were living at 547 West 123rd Street in Manhattan. In the 1920 United States census, Harry described himself as a patent inventor.

Harry died in New York on December 1, 1920. According to his death certificate, he had been working as a motion picture advertiser.

In 1925, Frances was still living in New York, along with two daughters, Ruth and Dorothy, and her sons, Ross and Joseph.

By 1928, Frances was back in Vancouver, along with her daughters, Ruth and Dorothy.
