I updated the page on Maude Louise Miles, who operated the Horseshoe Restaurant at 1873 Georgia Street in 1914. She managed another restaurant at 1968 Georgia Street in 1915.

I added information on her children.

I also added a link to “A Block of Libraries,” Vancouver As It Was; https://vanasitwas.wordpress.com/2020/03/23/a-block-of-libraries/, which refers to a bookstore business that Maude’s daughter had on south Granville Street.

I updated the page on the Hoffar Motor Boat Company, which built boats and aircraft.

The firm was at 1933 Georgia Street from 1909 to 1918, and at 1969 Georgia Street from 1919 to 1925.

Then it merged with Beeching Shipyard Limited to become Hoffar-Beeching Shipyards Limited at 1927 Georgia Street.
