Biographical history

Sharp and Thompson was a Vancouver architectural firm founded in 1908 by George Lister Thornton Sharp and Charles Joseph Thompson. The firm designed many buildings, including the master plan, Sciences Buildings, Main Library and powerhouse for the University of B.C.; the Vancouver Club; the Anglican Theological College at UBC, the Burrard Street Bridge, and a large number of residences; St. Mary's Church, Kerrisdale; the first Vancouver Art Gallery (1931).

After the retirement of George Sharp around 1940 and architects Robert Berwick and Ned Pratt became partners in 1945, the firm was renamed and continued as Thompson, Berwick and Pratt.

Biographical history

Allen S. Wootton was a civil engineer who spent much of his career with the Vancouver Park Board.

Wootton was born July 26, 1873 in England, and was a Town Engineering in England before moving to Canada, presumably to take the position of Parks Engineer with the Vancouver Park Board in June 1913. In 1936 he was appointed Parks Superintendent, effectively the head of the Park Board's operations. While with the Park Board, Wootton designed a number of structures, both built and unbuilt, for park and recreation facilities across the city.

Allen Wootton died August 6, 1950.
