I updated the page on 1949 Barclay Street, which was on the north side of Barclay Street, about midway between Gilford Street and Chilco Street.

Henderson’s City of Vancouver and North Vancouver Directory, 1909, page 293 [Georgia Street).

 

I updated the page on 1972 Georgia Street, which was in both the street listing and the name listing in the 1909 Vancouver directory. It appears to be a temporary or alternative address for part of the house at 1974 Georgia Street (or perhaps it was part of the house at 1968 Georgia Street.)
