Name of creator
Ross Anthony Lort was born in Birmingham, England. He began his career as an architect by articling at Samuel Maclure's office in 1904. In 1919, Lort moved to Vancouver where he became a partner in the firm Maclure and Lort. Following Maclure's death in 1929, Lort continued to practice on his own, later renaming his firm Lort and Lort, in partnership with his son William.
These records have remained in the custody of Maclure & Fox and its successors until they were donated to the Archives.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of architectural drawings by the firm of Maclure & Fox, primarily of residences in Vancouver's Shaughnessy Heights and West End neighbourhoods. Includes work of the Maclure and Lort, and Ross A. Lort offices and one house by firm of Jones & Aspell. Arranged into files by name of firm.
