    The Colonial Metropole

    The Colonial Metropole Hotel is an important part of the historic architecture of Victoria’s Old Town District. This building was the heart of Victoria’s saloon trade, catering primarily to sailors, miners, and loggers in the booming years of the late nineteenth century.

  • Cole Island National Historic Site

    $85.00$465.00

    Cole Island National Historic Site

    $85.00$465.00

    Cole Island is a provincial and a national historic site located in Esquimalt Harbour. In 1860, the Royal Navy began construction of a munitions depot on Cole Island. Eventually, 16 solid structures were used to store and recondition highly explosive munitions during the Crimean war and throughout World War One. Five buildings remain. The beautiful island is open to the public during daylight hours, and many kayakers and other boaters stop there to take the self-guided tour.

    St. Andrews Presbyterian Church

    $85.00$595.00

    This beautiful old building is home to so many organizations beyond its congregation, like the ballet and even pickle ball.

  • The Carnegie Library

    $85.00$460.00

    The Carnegie Library

    $85.00$460.00

    A little over a century ago, American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie laid the groundwork for today’s modern information network by donating millions of dollars toward the design, construction and development of libraries in Canada and around the world. Victoria’s Carnegie Library was completed in 1905, and is an important historic architectural landmark (so important there’s a Canadian postage stamp that commemorates it).

    Northern Junk Building

    $85.00$460.00

    The Northern Junk building is among the oldest commercial warehouses in Victoria’s Inner Harbour.  It was built in 1860 during the Fraser River Gold Rush, when Victoria was the primary reception point and supply town for miners coming from California en route to the interior of British Columbia.

  • Parliament Buildings British Columbia

    Parliament Buildings British Columbia

    $85.00$465.00

    Not even the moon can compete with the three thousand lights that set the Parliament Buildings aglow each night. Located on Victoria’s Inner Harbour, construction of the iconic Romanesque Revival building began in 1893 with further additions completed between 1912-1916. I used to work across the street from the building and had the pleasure of visiting it many times. The evening light-up is a tourist favourite.

    Ocean View

    Painted on site at Saxe Point Park in Esquimalt. Inspired by the spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains and Strait of Juan de Fuca. The park was created in 1934, and during World War II, many mature Douglas fir and Grand fir trees were cleared and a searchlight was installed as part of shoreline defense.
