Biographical history

Kenneth G. McKenzie was a commercial photographer based in Vancouver, B.C. for much of his career.

Kenneth McKenzie was born Nov. 21, 1884 in Bristol, England. He arrived in Vancouver in or before 1921, at which time he was working as a photographer at Geo. T. Wadds. In 1922 he was working under his own name and continued to do so until he formed a partnership with Reuben Marlow in 1932. The partnership operated under the names Art-O-Rama Studio, then McKenzie & Marlow. By 1935, it appears that McKenzie may have left the city, returning some time in the 1940s.

Kenneth McKenzie died Jan. 4, 1975

Custodial history
