There are so many wonderful old (and new) buildings in Victoria that this website includes only a very small sampling.
The University of Oregon Libraries online exhibit Building Oregon: Architecture of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest includes numerous photographs of Victoria.
|St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church
This church was was constructed in 1889.
|James Bay United Church|
|Church of Our Lord|
This church was built in the Gothic Revival style in 1875. The architect was John Teague. It is the oldest church building in Victoria still located on its original site.
|The Empress Hotel was built between 1904 and 1908. It was originally owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway.|
|Originally opened in 1911, the James Bay Inn is the third-oldest hotel in Victoria. I stay there whenever I am in town.|
|Ocean River Sports
Presumably this was formerly an industrial building of some sort.
|Sussex Building #1|
|Sussex Building #2|
The tower was reportedly constructed for the benefit of seaplanes landing in the Innher Harbour.
|Unidentified Building #1|
|The British Columbia Legislature, built 1894-1897|
|The main branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library shares a building with several other Provincial Government offices. This is the main entrance.|
|The Queen's Printer Building is a wonderful example of Art Deco style, even if the function of the building is more industrial.|
|Located close to the Legislature, the Douglas Building houses Government offices. I really love the marble around the front entrace.|
|The British Columbia Archives building is located adjacent to the Royal B.C. Museum. Not visible in this picture is the "moat" that mostly surrounds the front of the building.|
The building at 431 Menzies Street, near the Legislature, houses various Provincial Government offices.
|The Emily Carr House|
|I love the architectural details on this house. It is located directly across the street from the James Bay Inn.|
