I updated the page on 1873 Beach Avenue, which was on the north side of Beach Avenue, east of Gilford Street. It appears that it was a portion of a store that had 1875 Beach Avenue as its address.

I added historical references and information on the later uses of the property.

I added a brief new page on The Den Grocery, which was at 1178 Denman Street from 1909 to 1911. Ernest Augustus Stowey Daniell (1871-1958) was the proprietor.
