Discovering Historic Buildings at the BC Archives workshop

Victoria is filled with interesting old buildings, from the grand and stately to the colourful and quirky. It’s often easy to tell what goes on behind the doors today, but have you ever wondered what stories lie behind some of the older facades? This workshop will explore the tools available to research the structures around us, using photographs, blueprints, fire insurance maps and more. From heritage homes to public spaces, each building has a much deeper history than its bricks and mortar.
