Some Old Pictures of the Victoria Area

I found these at the University of Washington Archives

I had never heard of the Belvedere Hotel in Sooke - this is from 1915.  It burned down in 1934 and was located where the River Hotel is located  
A 1920 postcard of the Crystal Pool

View from the Malahat drive in 1920

Shoal Bay in 1905, now known as McNeill Bay
The sealer Alnoko 1898  - in the 1890s and first decade of the 2oth century Victoria had a huge sealing industry
