This presentation will cover the story of the Victoria area now known as Fairfield. Before 1843, what did the terrain look like, where were the village sites of the Indigenous inhabitants, and how were the streams and waterways used as a shortcut from Ross Bay to the Inner Harbour? Learn about the acquisition of the land by major landowners such as James Douglas, Joseph Pemberton and Isabella Ross and trace the history of farming, road development, residential growth and other aspects of this popular neighbourhood.
