The Inner Harbour, Victoria, B.C.

This card manages to convey a most uninviting bureaucratic 60s dreariness to it, which would make one NOT want to visit the depicted scene. Despite this, Victoria, the Inner Harbour, and the Royal Museum are all terrific places.


  1. This style reminds me of a group of cards I have, which my grandfather got in the 60s from trips to far-flung, underdeveloped african countries. The international style of the buildings could be an embassy or chamber of commerce anywhere--funny to be chosen for a view of a city having much charm and development.

  2. Your grandfather went to Africa? Just dimly recall you mentioning this before, maybe.
