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.
