A beautiful, full-colour keepsake of Victoria and its picturesque surroundings.
The natural beauty of Victoria and its environs is brilliantly showcased in this attractive book by internationally recognized photographer Chris Cheadle. From spectacular Sidney by the Sea to the charming downtown neighbourhoods of Chinatown, Old Town, and Fernwood, this book features an up-to-date overview of the area’s key attractions and landmarks. Cheadle’s photographic journey includes stunning images of the Inner Harbour district and nearby Fisherman’s Wharf and Beacon Hill Park; the winding and scenic shoreline from Fairfield through Oak Bay to Cadboro Bay; West Shore parks and historical sites, including Esquimalt Harbour, the Fisgard Lighthouse, and Hatley Park; and bucolic scenes along the West Coast Highway from Metchosin to Sooke. This is an ideal memento of Victoria.
