Biografie

Graham, Eva M. 1887-1967
Graham, George L 1881-1956

George L. and Eva Margaret Graham lived in Edmonton AB from ca. 1906. George Graham worked for the Edmonton Piano Co., ca. 1907, before establishing the firm of Graham and Reid Home Furnishings, with Horace P. Reid in 1908. The business began at 10373 Namayo Avenue (now 97 Street) and in 1917 moved to 10115 Jasper Avenue.
In 1932, Graham & Reid Home Furnishers became Henry, Graham & Reid located at 9905 Jasper Avenue. George Graham was president of the firm until ca. 1949. The business was sold to Harold Sprague in 1949, eventually becoming Sprague Furniture.
George Graham died in 1957 and Eva Margaret Graham died in 1967. They are buried at the Edmonton Municipal Cemetery.
