Victoria Underfoot by Brenda Clark
Book DescriptionDig deep into the capital of British Columbia to "take the mystery out of history". "Victoria Underfoot" is an unexpected and unusual look into the city underground. A team of British Columbia archaeologists looked everywhere to solve the mysteries down below, excavating houses, gardens and even the garbage dump! They reveal a history of Victoria that will surprise even the most knowledgeable historians, including tales of mysterious tunnels, hidden passageways and labyrinthine networks. There are stories of tunnels in Chinatown, which connected gambling rooms and opium dens and provided escape routes during police raids, and clean, bright tunnels used by government staff today. Colourfully illustrated with photographs and historical documents, "Victoria Underfoot" is an intriguing exploration of British Columbian subterranean searches. The authors' fantastic finds illustrate a history -- ancient and recent -- that is diverse and deep.
