Horton and Official Reporters

This image shows Albert Horton, House of Commons reporter in the 1880s, a young and dapper man with other dapper young men who were interested in reporting on the business of parliament.  Horton went on to be the chief editor of hansard (the official record of the House of Commons) and later chief editor of the senate’s official record as well.  These posts he would hold from the early 1900s until his retirement in 1928.

From ca. 1908 until his sudden death in the Bahamas in 1929, he lived at 208 Clemow (seen below in 1912, left side of image; and 2012), a Tudor Revival House located at the intersection with Lyon Street.

This house recently went through substantial renovation and restoration work.
