Edwin Caton Mahony was an employee of the BC Mills Timber and Trading Company. He lived at 2005 Comox Street from 1907 to 1924.

Edwin was born in Hamilton, Ontario, on October 14, 1864. His father was John C. Mahony, who was a boot and shoe manufacturer. Edwin’s mother was Hanna Sarah Gage.

After going to the public school and the high school in Hamilton, he took a series of courses at the Ontario Agricultural College. He graduated in 1882.

In the mid-1880s, he worked with his brother-in-law, John Bradley, who had a lumber business called “Flatt & Bradley” in Casselman, about 40 kilometres east of Ottawa, Ontario.

In 1890, Edwin moved to New Westminster, British Columbia. He worked for the Royal City Planing Mills, which was part of the British Columbia Mills, Timber and Trading Company.

On March 23, 1891, in New Westminster, Edwin married Clara Catherine Hill. She was born in Smithville, Ontario, on August 18, 1870. Her father was Nathaniel Hill (1838-1913). Her mother was Jane Ann Copeland (about 1840-1899).

In August 1891, Edwin and Clara moved to Vancouver.

Edwin continued to work for the British Columbia Mills company, except for a short period around 1898, when a fire destroyed the Vancouver plant. Edwin went to the mining district of Atlin, in northwest British Columbia, where he was the first postmaster. He soon returned to Vancouver, and on November 1, 1901, he became the manager of the Royal City Saw and Planing Mills. He lived in a house at the Hastings Mill site until about 1905.

When the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York (later King George V and Queen Mary) visited the Hastings Saw Mill on September 30, 1901, Edwin was part of the welcoming party (although his name was not in the official book of the tour that appeared in 1903).

While Edwin was working for the Royal City mill, he developed a method of wall construction to use the leftover ends of lumber that the company had previously treated as waste wood.

In 1904, Edwin received a United States patent for the “portable wall-section for house-building”:

“To all whom it may concern. Be it known that I, Edwin C. Mahony, a citizen of the Dominion of Canada, residing at Vancouver, in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Portable Wall-Sections for House-Building, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to the construction of knockdown houses especially designed for the use of settlers in a comparatively new or undeveloped country, and is intended to meet the requirements of such a class by providing a framed house the erection of which does not require the service of skilled carpenters or tradesmen, but that can be put together by the settler himself in less time than it would take to build one in the usual manner and that when finished is superior in its weather resisting qualities, appearance, and comfort to the best class of house as usually built by farmers or miners.”

BC Mills buildings appeared in many places, especially in western Canada. By 1907, Edwin had moved into his own house at 2005 Comox Street, which used BC Mills techniques for much of its construction. The distinctive vertical boards are especially clear on the right side of the photograph below.

During the First World War, he served as a lieutenant in the forestry company of the Canadian Expeditionary Force.

Edwin was active in the Masonic fraternity and the Knights Templars. He was also a member of the “Hoo-Hoos,” a lodge whose members were connected with the lumbering business. He belonged to the Vancouver Pioneers’ Association.

He continued to live at 2005 Comox Street until about 1924, when he moved to the Sylvia Court apartments.

Edwin died in Vancouver on October 31, 1930. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Clara died in Vancouver on September 17, 1943. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

The B.C. Mills Prefabricated System: The Emergence of Ready-made Buildings in Western Canada
by G. E. Mills and D. W. Holdsworth, Canadian Historic Sites: Occasional Papers in Archaeology and History No. 14,http://parkscanadahistory.com/series/chs/14/chs14-2f.htm. “Royal City Mills manager Edwin C. Mahony, a veteran lumberman, began experimenting with a system of panelled wall construction as a means of utilizing excess short ends of lumber which were being discarded as waste.” “The firm took pains to stress that, rather than restricting the scope of individual taste, the system offered the purchaser an almost limitless number of possible variations. Edwin Mahony undertook to demonstrate this by building himself an eye-catching home in Vancouver’s fashionable West End district in 1905 . . ., which a local writer touted as ‘an example of the perfection to which this modern method of construction has been brought. It is attractive, unique and handsome, and shows that individuality of taste has the fullest scope.’”
