Description

Built around 1910, 505 Glen Drive first appears in city directories in 1912 with William Dempster listed as the first resident. Dempster, a boiler at BC Sugar Refinery, lived at the house form 1912 to 1923. After Dempster the house saw a Vogue employee, peddlers, a junkman, and a labourer as residents. The next long term resident was Morris Mackoff, a junkman who lived in the house from 1927-1928, then 1931-1940. After Mackoff, William Paul (a reamer with Burrard Dry Dock) lived at the house from 1941 until 1954.
