Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
This home was built for Francois Xavier “Frank” Comeau (1863-1943), a blacksmith who moved from Quebec to Vancouver in about 1890, and his wife Cezarie Marie (née Fortin, 1860-1950), also from Quebec, whom he married in 1903. Featuring a front gabled roof with decorative triangular eave brackets, this comfortable Craftsman bungalow displays other characteristics typical of the style such as lapped siding at the foundation, a shingle-clad main floor, casement windows and stained glass transoms on the front elevation. The most notable feature of the plan is the inset verandah with subtle segmental-arched openings and tapered square columns.

Scope and Content
Photograph of the Angus and Margaret MacDonald house located at Oxford Street and Esmond Avenue. The MacDonald House is one of Burnaby’s landmark residential heritage buildings and was built in 1909 as part of the exclusive subdivision known as “Vancouver Heights.” The family came to Vancouver from Nova Scotia in 1891 and Angus MacDonald, an electrical contractor, served as a Councillor for the City of Vancouver from 1904-1908. Upon his retirement from the B.C. Electric Railway Company, he moved to Burnaby and was a prominent resident serving his North Burnaby ‘Ward’ as a Burnaby Councillor between 1911 and 1916. MacDonald Street in Burnaby was named in his honour. This house which cost $7,000 to construct is reputed to have been the second house built in the Vancouver Heights subdivision. After the death of Margaret MacDonald in 1939 and Angus MacDonald in 1941, the MacDonald family sold the house in 1944 to local grocer John R. and Anne Roane. In 1956, the property was purchased by the late Dr. John Alex MacDonald and his wife Violet E. MacDonald.
