This is a shot of downtown Victoria from 1947 looking south-east towards Fairfield. The Hudson Bay Company store can be seen just bottom-left of center. It also looks like there is a bit of a rail yard just off Chatham Street.
This is a slightly different view of Victoria from 1947. Looking south down Government and Douglas Streets from roughly Herald Street. You can see all the way to the ocean.
This is Victoria just west of Beacon Hill Park from 1954. You can still make out the Empress Hotel and the Parliament Buildings off in the distance.
This is Victoria from 1947. The area just North/East of the Johnson Street Bridge. You get a nice view of Fisgard Street, Herald Street and Chatham Street.
This is a bit if a higher up shot of Victoria’s Inner Harbour from 1951. You get an excellent view of the city and houses surrounding the downtown core. Check out the ships in the harbour.
This is Victoria from 1954. The image doesn’t quite have the clarity of some of the others, but still interesting to see this part of town.
Taken from almost directly above the Empress Hotel and facing North, this photo shows downtown Victoria from 1947.
