Parliament Buildings at Victoria

A view of the Legislative Buildings of the Province of British Columbia, at Victoria. They were erected in the years 1893 to 1897; Francis Mawson Rattenbury was the architect. This design gave Vancouver Island its first representation in Canadian postage stamps. It also honoured, through its capital city, the Pacific province of Canada.
