Mildred Hope Clark

From 1936 to 1940, Mrs. Mildred Hope Clark lived in the house. She was the widow of Brigadier General Robert Percy Clark, who was a financial broker after the First World War.

When the stock market crashed in 1929, General Clark’s firm, like many others, suffered significant losses. Efforts to save the firm were unsuccessful, and the company made an assignment in bankruptcy on November 6, 1930. A series of complicated legal cases eventually sorted out the rights of shareholders, creditors and clients of the company.

When General Clark died on April 8, 1932, he was living at 1999 Nelson Street.

 

Calgary Herald, April 8, 1932, page 1, column 7.

 

Vancouver Province, April 10, 1932, page 19, column 1.

 

The liabilities of General Clark’s estate were far greater than the estate’s assets.

 

Vancouver Sun, May 31, 1932, page 2, columns 1-2.

 

Mildred continued to live at 1999 Nelson Street until 1935, when she moved to 1834 Haro Street.

She remained in the Haro Street house until about 1940, when she moved to 1275 West 27th Avenue.

She died at 1507 West 12th Avenue on November 5, 1951.

 

Vancouver Province, November 7, 1951, page 6, columns 4-5.

 

 

Mayer Chechik

From 1941 to 1947, Mayer Chechik and his family lived in the house. He was a former grain dealer and cold storage company operator. He was also involved in the export liquor business.

In 1938, he built the Bay Theatre at the corner of Denman Street and Barclay Street.

He died in Montreal in 1947.

Rooming House

From 1948 through the 1960s (and possibly the early 1970s), the house offered rental accommodations.

Apartment Building

In 1973, a developer proposed to build a 21-storey building on three lots on the south side of Haro Street, including 1834 Haro Street.

After the city refused to allow the project to go ahead, the developer sued the city. The city agreed to approve the project.

 

Vancouver Sun, February 21, 1973, page 12, columns 4-5.

 

By 1975, the developer was advertising sales in the new building.

Huntington Place occupies the lots that formerly included 1816 Haro Street, 1834 Haro Street, and 1846 Haro Street.
