RBCM@Home (Summer) Hello History

Hello History with the Parliamentary Players, part 2

We again go across the street (to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia) and back in time to meet some important historical figures. Thanks to the Parliamentary Players, during this session we'll meet both Francis Rattenbury and Nellie Cashman. After we hear their fascinating stories, we'll be able to ask them questions. Oh, hello there history- how have you been?

Francis Rattenbury (1867-1935) was the architect for both the BC Parliament Buildings and the Empress Hotel. He lived and died rather eventfully- hear about it all from the man himself.

Nellie Cashman (1845-1925) was born in Ireland, and later immigrated to Boston to escape the potato famine. In 1874, as a part of the Cassiar gold rush, she came to BC. She was known as 'The Miner's Angel'...find out why.

Francis Rattenbury and Nellie Cashman are played by Carter Gulseth and Grace Fedorchuk.
