Patrick Dunae, a former archivist and now a director of the Hallmark Heritage Society and a member of the City's Heritage Advisory Committee, has been piecing together some unlikely records. Old maps, early directories listing residents' names, insurance underwriters' studies, property records and census data are all coming together to create pictures of what Victoria looked like during the Edwardian era.
You can read more about Dunae's research in an article by Richard Watts in the Times-Colonist web site at http://goo.gl/r1umc.
Details of Dunae's data with links to various databases can be found at http://vihistory.ca.
