I am trying to figure out where in Victoria the farm was located, but the closest I get is the Lake District, which is the southern part of Saanich.
The sale of the cows and calfs at $40 to $60 each is about 1/20th of what they sell for now.
I had not realised till today at 1862 was the year Vancouver Island and BC changed from using the pound sterling as currency to using the dollar
|1862 Vancouver Island Budget - still in pounds|
|1863 Vancouver Island Budget - now in dollars|
