Automobiles & Transportation 1940-1949
This 19040 advertisement for Vancouver Island Coach Lines shows the bus schedules from downtown Victoria to Victoria beaches: Thetis Lake, Cadboro bay and Cordova Bay.
Unfortunately it does not provide fare prices.
The former Begg Motor Company building is still standing at 865 Yates Street.
1946 Advertisement For Firestone Tires, showing Victoria and Duncan Firestone Dealers
This advertisement is also interesting for its prominent statement that “Tire Rationing Ended”. Tires had been rationed during World War II (1939-1945)
