Dates of existence
The architectural firm Ross A. Lort Architect grew out of the firm Maclure and Lort (which itself was a descendant of the firm Maclure & Fox). With the death of Samuel Maclure in 1929, Ross Lort assumed the Vancouver office of the firm in his own name, changing the name of the practice to reflect this.
The firm's principal work was residential: homes and apartment buildings in a variety of styles. In the later years of his practice, he expanded into smaller commercial, arts and medical facilities, and churches.
In 1959, Ross Lort's son, William Lort, joined the firm. Ross Lort continued to practice until just 1967.
