Like the Briers just down the road, the Vuarchoz family had a long association with Gun Alley.
Jules Vuarchoz acquired the land in 1891 and his son Charles sold it in 1944 – 53 years later.
People of gun Alley fondly remember Granny Vuarchoz and her French accent. She was one of the characters of the street. Widowed young, she worked hard to support and raise her family.
Lot 7 Block 6 or 54 John Street was home to the Vuarchoz family for more than 60 years.
