Calgary - Secrets of the City by James Martin

Book Description

Victoria, B.C., situated on picturesque Vancouver Island, is one of the world's most popular cities, and regularly appears in Conde Nast Traveler's annual list of top-ten tourist destinations. Also known as the Garden City, Victoria has a reputation for having Canada's mildest climate, and for being Canada's most "British" of cities, given its large British expatriate population. But Victoria, for all of its charm, also holds many little-known secrets. For example, Victoria is home to Canada's only plant quarantine center, and there is a long-held belief that the quaint city by the sea is a haven for devil worshippers. Victoria: Secrets of the City is third in the Secrets of the City series (which includes Calgary and Vancouver), and casts a watchful eye over the old colonial city to see the underground bunkers, the sushi restaurants, and the Capital City Scooter Club, where members own Vespa scooters and stage convoy tours. Also included: little-known facts (Victoria is home to the worst street-car accident in North America), and strange celebrity stories (Tallulah Bankhead, attending a party hosted by coal scion Dola Dunsmuir, was given a gluteal shot of Demerol). On an average day in Victoria, you can: watch the Blue Danube performed by harbour ferries, watch a bassett hound race, participate in a Glen or Glenda drag show, and get the holes in your bowling ball resized. With Victoria: Secrets of the City in your hand, anything is possible.
