Lauded as "a lighthearted look at a fascinating city full to brimming with the characters who made Victoria the lovely city it is today," this tale of Victoria’s past has been embraced by visitors and residents alike as a delightful exploration of the essence of Victoria.

Enhanced with over 45 historical photos and an original watercolor cover, Victoria, A HarbourTown History offers the fascinating stories, events, and characters that created this lovely slice of England nestled in the Pacific Northwest. This loving look at Victoria begins with an introduction to the Lekwungen who were there before Victoria was Victoria, the domineering Hudson’s Bay Company, and its most famous employer, James A. Douglas, a stubborn, visionary, stern, and tenacious leader who shaped the rough, young settlement. Following these early forces were the hopeful gold-seekers, merchants, scalawags, brave women, and elder statesmen who contributed to the development of the fascinating city we so enjoy today. Spanning its history from before Fort Victoria was built to today’s trials and triumphs a century-and-a-half later, this popular history is a must for anyone interested in Victoria.
