William Hamitlon Jnr was a salesman on the 1953 border crossing. gave his last address as 600 Burrard Vancouver.  This appears to be Empire Motors Ltd.,

Why would he give the addresses of a company as his last know address.   I have also trying to find information of his son William he mention staying at 129 18th N.E Calgary.

William was single, perhaps moved from lodging house to lodging house - a roomer.

The address he was going to was 1633 American Long beach California.

In 1955 a guy called Bob Ballack started a car business at Harbor Lincoln/Mercury at 1633 American Ave., just a block up from Salta Pontiac and Beryl Berry Plymouth and tons of used car dealers. It was truly Automobile Row all the way to Willow Street.

Perhaps it should say son of ..................and that is his father.
Although we know William Hamilton Snr was in Moose Jaw 1927 until possibly 1947 and then in Vancouver for B C Telelphone Co, before he passed in Nanaimo.

 So I assume that william would probably have settled down in that area until his death.
  i am struggling to find any thing on the son he mentions.  How was he staying with as he would only be about 8-10 years old. I have nothing coming  up with that address.

I think you are right. Just had another look at his documents.

BUFFALOBILL - WILLIAM HAMILTON Born 1918, Harthill, Scotland, was my father.  I'm very intrigued of our potential family connection.
