Victoria timeline sketch


A graphite drawing by E. J. Hughes showing a timeline of history in Victoria B.C. in two rows of panels. The panels show figures of humans grouped together with city streets and buildinsg in the backgrounds. The first set of panels has a note that "B.C.E. starts here" and then progresses along to one called "New B.C.E. bldg". The second set of panels starts with a note "Paying Indians with HBC blankets for their work helping build fort" and the figure of Sir James Douglas, it then moves to a panel dated 1848-1858 titled "From England", the next is dated 1860 and is titled "Cariboo Miners", the next is dated 1865 and is titled "R.N.", moving to another set of panels dated 1903-1918, and the last panel is titled "Victoria To-day" and has hanging flower baskets and a bus stop noted on it. The sketches seem to be for a wall mural and there are notes that it would be Masonite with measurements.
