I updated the page on John George Hewitt Crawford (often called John George Crawford or J. G. Crawford). He was an importer, commission merchant, and shipping agent.

According to the Vancouver directory, he lived at 1841 Barclay Street in 1900. (It appears that a later address for this house was 1835 Barclay Street.)

He was at 1835 Barclay Street in 1916.

I added illustrations and information on members of his family.

I updated the page on Samuel John Emanuels, who was an auctioneer, notary public, general commission agent and vice-consul for Brazil.

He lived at 1102 Denman Street in 1906 and 1907, at 2046 Beach Avenue in 1915, and 1154 Gilford Street in 1917 and 1918.

I added illustrations, along with information on his parents and his second marriage.

I added a new page on “C. W. Robinson,” a grocer who lived at 1841 Barclay Street in 1901. It appears that this is actually a reference to Charles William Robson (1853-1906), who lived on the 1800 block of Barclay Street from 1897 to 1902.

I also updated the page on Charles William Robson (1853-1906), including references to his grocery and commission merchant businesses.
