I updated the page on Charles N. Lee (Cornelius Nemmo Lee), who operated Lee’s Pier Tea Rooms at 1900 Beach Avenue from 1908 to 1920.
I added information on his restaurant at 744 Granville Street. The name was originally Lee’s Refreshment Parlor. Soon afterward it became Lee’s Kat ‘n’ Kitten. Later, the site became a branch of The Woman’s Bakery.
Thanks to Murray at Vancouver As It Was [https://vanasitwas.wordpress.com/] for pointing out the Lee family’s connection to the Kat ’n’ Kitten refreshment parlor at 744 Granville Street.
