As a special bonus for today, we’ve got something really unique to share with all our readers.  This link will take you to a site where a local historian has compiled and assembled a complete 6 minute B&W movie of work produced by a local photographer, William Harbeck, in 1907.

This entire video was shot in the city I live in, Victoria BC, Canada.  It shows a downtown that is growing and bustling with people and stores.  Today, this scene looks nothing like the images in the movie.  It is really fascinating to catch a glimpse of this city as it was over 100 years ago.

We really hope you enjoy this film!
