For years Victoria had the reputation for being so very English. Local historian John Adams will sort fact from fiction and show that there was a lot more diversity in the city than tourism promoters, beginning in the 1920s, wanted us to believe. Home to Indigenous peoples for millennia, the area witnessed an influx of newcomers that began in 1843 and continued through the eras of the fur trade, gold rushes, railway construction and development of the city as BC’s capital and an industrial hub. First Nations, French Canadians, Métis, Hawaiians, Black people, Asians, British and Europeans were all part of the mix.
