According to the 1914 Vancouver Social Register, he was living at Sylvia Court, 1154 Gilford Street in 1914.

John Shaw Helyer (1857-1919)

I updated the page on John Shaw Helyer, an architect who lived at 944 Denman Street from 1917 to 1919. His most well-known building in Vancouver is the Dominion Trust Building. His other buildings in Vancouver included the Stock Exchange Building and the Metropolitan Building.

John Helyer’s wife, Mary Jane Helyer (née Young) (1866-1937) lived at 944 Denman Street in 1920.

The updated material relates to Mr. Helyer’s work for the yacht-building firm of Field and Company in Southampton. In particular, the sources section now includes links to selected information on Mr. Helyer’s yacht designs, including some illustrations.

Thanks to Leonardo García de Vincentiis for providing the primary source of this material, which is Henry Coleman Folkard’s book called The Sailing Boat, a Treatise on Sailing Boats and Small Yachts.
