I updated the page on Justin Lee Skene, who was a building contractor and architect. He lived at 1019 Gilford Street in 1915 and 1916.

I added information on Justin’s sister, Mae, who was married to Justin’s business partner, John Sheridan Christie.

I also added information on a court case related to the construction of the second Hotel Vancouver.

Thanks to a descendant of Justin’s sister for this information.
