([1890 - 24 Aug 1960]<sup>4</sup>)


Originally from Scotland, Angus Gorrie ran a small business selling items like chocolate, icecream and home brew. He lived at the northernmost part of Green Lake.<sup>1</sup>

Bob Williamson remembers "It was more of a summer place for him there, he came up fishing, he was up there a lot in the winter time. I used to meet him up on the railway track on skis when I was coming along there but he was a kind of a loner he never was much around people...I don't know what his job was in Vancouver, he was a Scotsman and he used to come dressed, not in a kilt but in the tam o'shanters and all that kind of stuff. I think maybe like the rest of us a up there he was a bit eccentric."<sup>2</p>

Jenny Jardine remembers "[He] lived at Green Lake across from Parkhurst in a huge building full of second hand articles sent up for safe keeping from his brother at Hawkins and Gorrie Auctioneers of Vancouver. Angus had been a prisoner of war in 1914 for a number of years and was forced labour in Austrian salt mine, he used to visit me when I lived at Parkhurst one winter - he was a bit disturbed."<sup>3</sup>
