The house may have received an even number as part of the Pendrell Street numbering scheme. By 1910, the Vancouver directory showed 1830 Morton Avenue, but no 1830 Pendrell Street. Perhaps the street name changed from Pendrell to Morton, but it kept the original 1830 house number.

There was an 1830 Morton Avenue from 1910 to 1929. In 1930, the address became 1835 Morton Avenue.
