Victoria: Vintage Fire Fighting

We sailed into Victoria just in time for the “BC 150”, the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of British Columbia. What a hoot! The Victoria inner harbor is always a lot of fun — but with the BC 150 Years Festival the city has gone all out. We’ll try to cover just some of the highlights. First is a remarkable collection of 70 pieces of vintage fire fighting gear. Enthusiasts from all over brought their collections to show off. Some of the most impressive antiques were hauled all the way from Portland Oregon.
