Yeah I know. This forum is filled with old pics of Victoria. But this one can be pics of all sorts. Scenery, people, buildings - just as long as it's of the Victoria area and they are old.
Here's one of James Bay, when it was actually a bay:

That reversed view from Orchard House was driving me crazy so I fixed it.


"Beaver, ahoy!""The bridge is like a magnet, attracting both pedestrians and over 30,000 vehicles daily who enjoy the views of Victoria's harbour. The skyline may change, but "Big Blue" as some call it, will always be there."
