The early residents of the house tended to stay for only one to three years. From time to time there were auctions of household furnishings.
The house was a private residence until the mid-1940s.
In 1935, the yard at 2060 Comox Street was the location of the official weather thermometers for Vancouver.
The house later became a rooming house.
There was a house on the property in 1954. However, it is not clear if this was the original house, a modified version of the original house, or a replacement. The house in the photograph below does not seem to resemble the outline of the house in the earlier maps and plans near the top of this page.
A house was still on the property in 1962. The lot also included a series of garages at the rear of the lot.
In 1964, house wreckers demolished the building.
In September 1965, a new apartment building called “Park Vista” was on the site.
