'Travel with the Roscoes: Amazing Journeys'
People in early Victoria thought little about travelling back and forth to San Francisco, New York, Ottawa and England in the 1860s and 1870s.
What routes did they use, and what transport was available? What hotels did they stay in? What did they see en route, and at their destinations?
They travelled on the first trans-continental railroad, stayed in amazingly splendid hotels, and were snowed in, high in the mountains. The hardships, voyages, and unexpected grandeur of travelling with the Roscoe family will all be discussed.
Stuart Stark, Heritage Consultant, will be your tour guide.
