Eva M. Peter and Charles H. Wilson, wedding description; Vancouver Province, January 31, 1906 page 1: “Miss Peter and Mr. C.H. Wilson Were Married This Morning.

The marriage took place this morning at Christ Church of Miss Eva M. Peter, and Mr. Charles H. Wilson, Rev. C.C. Owen being the officiating clergyman. The wedding was exceedingly quiet, only the immediate friends of the contracting parties being present. The couple left this afternoon for Victoria en route to Southern California, where they will spend six weeks. The bride is a popular young lady, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter of Hornby street. Mr. Wilson is one of the best known building contractors in Vancouver, and is very popular in business circles.”

Ex-Ald. C.H. Wilson and his bride returned last night from a trip to Southern California. They were away six weeks.

‘I am very glad to get back to Vancouver again,’ said Mr. Wilson this morning, ‘although there are few finer places than Southern California in which to live or spend a holiday. Los Angeles is a very fine city indeed. The city is preparing to spend twenty million dollars in the development of a water system. A canal will be built from away up in the Nevada Mountains, two hundred miles away, and the water will be sold for irrigation purposes on the way down as well as for the purposes of the city itself.’”
