Dates of existence



Harry Barratt was born in Gibraltar on February 5, 1898. His father was in the medical corps of the British and Canadian armies, and the family was stationed at various locations, including England, Bermuda, Ottawa, Halifax, and Winnipeg. While in Winnipeg, Harry studied architecture at the University of Manitoba [ca. 1920-1924], distinguishing himself as the top student in his class.

Barratt moved to Vancouver in 1924 and found employment with Sidney E. Junkins Co., with whom he worked on the building of the Pier, BC. Throughout his career, he was associated with several local firms, such as Townley & Matheson and Van Norman, Thompson, Berwick & Pratt. Barratt also operated his own architectural firm at 709 West Georgia Street in Vancouver. He designed various buildings in Vancouver, including Fire Halls no. 2 and 17, the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club at Coal Harbour and Jericho Beach, the CPR Pier, several office buildings, as well as many homes in Vancouver and the British Properties. Barratt also designed a number of buildings across the province of British Columbia, including the Bella Coola Hotel and the Government Building in Powell River.

He died June 10, 1964.
