From email from Murray Barkhouse Thursday March 24, 2016: I was fascinated to see your three photographs of Louisa Killam Richardson who was my grandfather's sister. My grandfather was a medical doctor in Woodville Nova Scotia. I had never seen these photographs before. Louisa was born in Woodville Nova Scotia and then married and lived in Greenville New Hapmpshire. Her husband injured his hand working in a furniture factory there and she earned much needed income from sewing. They returned to Kentville Nova Scotia and are listed in the census of 1922. Her husband at some point worked in real estate, whereupon they moved from Nova Scotia to Burnaby, BC. They had no children,. Murray Barkhouse email: murrayroybarkhouse@gmail.com 902-543-5767

Scope and Content
Photograph of B. (Bruce) Patterson and his first wife, Elva Patterson.
Charles Bruce Patterson (called Bruce) built many early homes in the Edmonds district of Burnaby. He also built the Sperling Avenue School in 1913. For a time he was put in charge of Vulcan Iron Works of New Westminster, a business owned by his father Dugald Campbell Patterson Sr. Bruce quickly developed a passion for wrought iron work which would last his entire lifetime. Some years after the Vulcan Iron Works property was absorbed into the Dominion Bridge Company, Bruce opened a smaller iron works operation in the Arrow Transfer building on Granville Island. He named this company Vulcan Metal Works Ltd. Here, he made a variety of artistic railings for homes, churches and apartment buildings and drew inspiration from both Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. In addition to his wrought iron railings, he also designed and created many other architectural pieces which included iron patio furniture, leaded glass window panels for French doors, headboards, and decorative designs for the exteriors of clocks. Bruce also built and renovated numerous homes throughout the lower mainland. Bruce married Elva Eleanore Elliott on July 17, 1918. After Elva’s death he married again at the age of 82. His second wife’s name was Martha May (Bird) Summers. [Biography provided by Raymond Reitsma.]
