New College for Boys

1178 Denman Street, 1180 Denman Street, and 1182 Denman Street, detail from English Bay – showing beach and buildings at corner of Davie Street and Denman Street, 1923; City of Vancouver Archives, CVA 258-1; https://searcharchives.vancouver.ca/nst-7032.

 

I updated the page on New College for Boys, which was a short-lived private school at 1182 Denman Street in 1911.

I added illustrations and biographical information on some of the instructors at the school.

I updated the page on Richard Harold Davis. He was a men’s clothing salesman who worked with Gault Brothers Limited, and for some time he may have been a dancing teacher.

Richard’s wife, Ethel Constance Davis, was a dancing teacher.

Mr. and Mrs. Davis lived at 1844 Georgia Street from 1920 to 1924.

I added information on their family background and on their later life in England.
