Remembrance Day in the early 1930’s

A wonderful photograph of the Remembrance Day ceremonies at Victoria’s Inner Harbour in the early 1930’s. The photograph was likely taken from the steps of Victoria’s War Memorial which was unveiled in July 1925.

A group of Great War veterans, proudly wearing their medals, wait to lay their wreaths at the foot of the memorial. Members of the Canadian Scottish (Princess Mary’s) Regiment are also clearly visible.

Judging from the automobiles the photo dates from the early 1930’s, although no earlier than 1931 as this is when the Imperial Esso station opened on the corner of Government and Wharf Streets.
