^ I take it that map was not sponsored by the "skid row hotels".
Neat map. Had to be after 1966 as the museum was already built and Pandora Avenue had already been changed. Probably 1968...have you seen this picture of Lower Johnson (I refuse to say LO JO) http://www.flickr.co...ory/4459611799/
That was in the heart of the so-called skid row Hotels.
Here is a list from, The Victoria Guidebook (published 1979) of "Beer Parlours" in the city:
-The Beaver "Chili a specialty, cocktails available."
-The Centurion "Dance Floor"
-The Colony Pub "Exotic Dancers Nightly"
-The Colwood Inn
-The Corral Room at the Westwind
-The Crown and I
-Friar's Pub (Sherwood Park Inn)
-Friar Tuck, King John's Inn
-The Golden Bear in Sidney
-The Gorge (beautiful old California Mission style long gone)
-The Halfway House (since 1860!)
-Royal Oak Inn
-Royal Olympic Pub
-Seventeen Mile (Royal Ensign)
-Six Mile, oldest drinking establishment in British Columbia still surviving.
-Sooke Rive Hotel (The Castle)
