HP: 1409 Cook Street

My latest addition to Historypin is this nice real photo postcard of a home at 1409 Cook Street in Victoria, BC.

This home first appeared in the 1909 Vancouver Island Directory and I suspect this photo was taken sometime before the First World War. The first owner was George Lister, a plumber, who lived at the residence until 1915 when Ross Todd moved in. A Thomas Beattie and Charles Cummings subsequently occupied the house in 1918 and 1920, but by 1921 the Francis family moved in and made it their home for the next 10 years.

The 1930’s saw several other owners until a Mr. Gosse arrived in 1938. I’ve been unable to take my directory search past 1940 but I suspect the home was demolished in the 1950’s when a large medical building was constructed at the corner of Cook and Pandora.
