Biographical history

Janet Bingham has done research on local architectural history; the papers "Aberthau" and "Shannon", prepared for the Vancouver Board of Parks and Public Recreation in 1972, are two of the products of her work. "Aberthau" examines a home located at the intersection of Trimble and 2nd Avenue in Point Grey. "Aberthau" was built in 1909 for J.S. Rear, a prominent local businessman, and is of historical interest because it was designed by the noted architect Samuel Maclure. "Shannon" examines a home located at Granville and 57th Avenue. The home, built over a decade spanning the First World War, is on a palatial scale and is surrounded by formal gardens and wooded paths. The home was built by B.T. Rogers and sold to Austin Taylor in 1936. In 1966 it was purchased by the B.C. Teachers' Federation; within a year, however, it had been sold to the firm Wall and Redekop, which redeveloped the property as a townhouse estate.
