    Biographical history

    Walter E. Graveley came to Victoria from Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1881. He moved to Gastown in 1885 and established a real estate business, purchasing the first lot sold by the CPR for his business premises when the railway was extended from Port Moody to Vancouver. Graveley was very active in Vancouver yachting circles and was one of the founders of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.
