History such as rum runners, centuries old gardens and homes Jan. 10 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
History sits beneath everyone, but only a few have the guts to explore it. "Victoria Underfoot: Excavating a City's Secrets" looks at the city of Victoria in British Columbia and its excavators, people who would typically not be expected to be seen in an urban area, still dwelled in the modern day. History such as rum runners, centuries old gardens and homes give a picture to the yet unrecorded history of the grand fathers and great grandfathers of today's people. "Victoria Underfoot" is a must for anyone who views a century ago as interesting as a millennium ago.
