    Victoria City provided public toilets back in those more civilized days. Some were in the little white building ,pathway on each side, directly behind CITY Hall. There were others, underground, at the end of the causeway,near the old Imperial gas station. Those ones had a bad reputation.

    It’s nice to see an aerial view of the old Victoria Market building and the firehall on Cormorant Street, as it was before Centennial Square was built.

    Even more interesting might be the start of construction of the Memorial Arena.
