Vancouver directory listings from 1903 to 1911.

Vacant 1903 to 1906
Airey, William 1907 to 1914

 

Although William Airey was in the name listing of the Vancouver directories until 1914, this address did not appear in the Vancouver street directories after 1911.

In 1916, the Vancouver fire department responded to a chimney fire in William Airey’s shack. The newspaper report said that the address was “910 Pendrill Street.” Since the lowest number for Pendrell Street addresses is 1000, and since Mr. Airey had lived at 1910 Pendrell Street in earlier years, it is probable that the small house was still at 1910 Pendrell Street in 1916, although it may not have been there for much longer.

In 1939, the then-vacant property was part of a small park-like area at the southwest corner of Pendrell Street and Gilford Street.
