My great uncle, Walter Joseph DRESSER, used to live at 1510 Bishop
Street. He was living there on December 13th, 1940, when he made an
affidavit regarding his citizenship (probably to allow him to travel
back and forth across the border with the US).
Apparently he lived in an apartment building that no longer exists. At
the time he lived there, 1510 Bishop Street was at the corner of Bishop
and Sherbrooke, but, according to his daughter, the building was later
torn down (perhaps in the 60's?) to make more room at that corner.
Bishop Street isn't very long (at least today...) so I wonder if it
would be long enough for both 1510 and 25 to be on the very same street.
