However, it appears that the lot reference above may not be accurate. An advertisement for the northwest corner of Comox Street and Chilco Street referred to that property as being diagonally across Comox from the Cannon property (which was, therefore, on the southeast corner of Comox Street and Chilco Street).
As well, in 1904, Mr. Cannon applied to have a sidewalk in front of his property, which was on lot 13.
