Vancouver Art Gallery framing label

A photograph of this early framing label was provided courtesy of Paul Crawford, Director of the Penticton Art Gallery. It took a while looking through directories before I found the Gallery referenced in two city directories: 1922 and 1923. It was not advertised in the "art gallery" section of the directories, and so my original search through the directories did not find it.

I looked up B.C. Hersey in the B.C. Vital Statistics on-line search page, and found a death certificate for him with occupation noted as a "retired furniture upholsterer" who had moved here in 1910. I went through the directories starting with that date, looking through both the street address index (with names of tenants) and the name index.
