West Coast Gazetteer & Directory ~ Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Victoria District, the capital and metropolis of British Columbia, is situated at the southeastern extremity of Vancouver Island, 65 miles in an easterly direction from the Pacific Ocean, in latitude 48° 25' 20", longitude 123° 22' 24".

The town occupies a pleasant site on nearly level or easy rolling ground, with an occasional eminence, affording a tine view of the surrounding country. It has a land-locked harbor nearly circular in form, which can only be entered by vessels of light draft; but ships of the largest class can find safe anchorage at Esquimault, three miles' distant. From an obscure trading post, established by the Hudson Bay Company in 1837, Victoria has rapidly risen to her present important commercial position, her growth being considerably accelerated by the discovery of the gold fields of Fraser River and Caribou.

The varied resources of this section, including excellent farming, grazing, and timber lands, extensive coal beds and salmon fisheries, assure the continued growth and prosperity of the place. The city is well laid out with wide streets crossing each other at right angles, and contains many substantial brick and stone stores, and several handsome public buildings, including the Post office, Custom House and City Hall. Among the manufacturing establishments in successful operation are three iron foundries and machine shops, a stove foundry, boiler works, sash and door factory, furniture factory, a steam saw-mill, two boot and shoe factories; also four ship yards, which in the aggregate give employment to a large number of men.

An excellent public school is maintained, having an average attendance of about four hundred and fifty scholars, the number enrolled being about eight hundred. The building, a handsome brick edifice, three stories high, with a mansard roof and cupola, was erected at a cost of $35,000. In addition to this institution there are a number of seminaries and private schools of a high character. The city is well supplied with churches, a number of which are large and handsome edifices. The denominations represented are the Episcopal, Presbyterian, Reformed Episcopal, Baptist, Methodist, Hebrew, and Roman Catholic.

Among the secret and benevolent organizations are lodges of Masons, Odd Fellows, Ancient Order of Foresters, Ancient Order United Workmen, and the British Columbia Benevolent, St. Andrews, and Caledonian Societies. The Mechanics' Literary Institute, which is in flourishing condition, have commodious reading rooms well supplied with papers, and a library of 4,500 volumes. Another library maintained by the Odd Fellows contains 1,500 volumes. The Protestant Orphans' Home, a worthy institution, sustained by contributions, provides for the care and education of the fatherless and motherless. In addition to the societies already enumerated there is a Board of Trade and the British Columbia Trades Protection Society, The Dominion Government Telegraph and Victoria and Esquimault Telephone Co, afford the inhabitants facilities for rapid communication with various points.

An abundant supply of good water is brought from a lake seven miles distant. The water works, as well as the gas works, are under the control of the city authorities, and both water and gas are furnished to the inhabitants at actual cost. For protection against the ravages of the fire fiend is a volunteer fire department and telephone fire alarm. The apparatus consists of two steam engines drawn by horses, two hand engines, and a hook and ladder truck. Two ably conducted and enterprising journals. The British Colonist and Victoria Standard are published daily and weekly. The climate of this section is mild and exceedingly healthful. The maximum temperature during the summer months is from 80° to 90°. In the winter ice forms at times of sufficient thickness for skating purposes and snow falls to the depth of a few inches. Rains are frequent during the fall, winter and summer months.

Communication is maintained by steamer with New Westminster and Nanaimo bi-weekly; with Port Townsend tri-weekly; with San Francisco tri-monthly, and with ports in Alaska monthly.
