I updated the page on Francis Henry Burnett (called Frank Burnett, Senior), who worked in salmon canning, insurance and real estate. He was also a traveller, explorer and writer.

He lived at 1846 Haro Street from 1903 to 1907, and possibly in 1909.

His son, Frank Burnett (Junior), lived at 1877 Comox Street from 1911 to 1913.

I added illustrations and biographical references for him and members of his family.
