Arthur Henry Bradbury (about 1873-1940)

I updated the page on Arthur Henry Bradbury. He was a baker and a grocer who was at 1208 Denman Street from 1905 to 1912.

From 1917 to 1919 he operated the English Bay Tea Rooms at  1200 Denman Street.

He operated the English Bay Bakery, which was at 1204 Denman Street from about 1920 to 1928.

I added illustrations, along with information on his daughter.

1000 Denman Street

I updated the page on 1000 Denman Street, which was on the southeast corner of Denman Street and Nelson Street. For most of its life it was a grocery store, chocolate shop, and bakery.

In the 1950s, the site became part of a service station lot, and it later formed part of the Denman Place complex.

I added illustrations and information on the uses of the property over the years.

(Note: in the plan below, the street number appears as “1004” rather than its normal number of “1000.”)

I added a new page on Shelly Brothers, which was a bakery firm.

The Shelly brothers were William Curtis Shelly (1878-1951) and Frederick Shelly (1886-1948).

The main business location of Shelly Brothers was at 2533 Ash Street. In 1914 there was also a branch at 740 Denman Street, which Shelly Brothers had taken over from Hoy and Sons.
