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 added background information on his family, along with an advertisement for Dingwall Cotts and Company.
