On the Street Where You Live
Pioneer Pathways of Early VictoriaBook - 1999
Victoria has a wealth of fascinating street names. But where did they come from? It's often hard to remember that they were originally attached to people. Danda introduces readers to these people in her On The Street Where You Live trilogy. In her first book readers learn about the Hudson's Bay Company traders and settlers who came here in the 1840s when Fort Victoria was the only vestige of civilisation, to the colonial judges and administrators who came over from England and created a replica of their homeland, and to the merchants and magnates who came to make money off the gold rush and stayed to develop the city and the Island.
