David H. Bale was a building contractor who designed homes which he then built through his company, D.H. Bale. Although David H. Bale does not appear to have been a licensed architect he was describing himself in his pre-1920 advertisements as an “Architect, Builder and Contractor”.
A 1913 advertisement for D.H. Bale is shown below. Notice that his business was located in his home at 1402 Stadacona Avenue, at the corner of Fort Street and Stadacona Avenue.
