« previous next »

#dailycolonist1914 - News out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago today:

  • German advance toward French ports on the English Channel still stymied. 
  • Hundreds of thousands of Belgian refugees in England and Netherlands. Those still in Belgium [including my maternal grandparents] facing starvation.
  • Trade negotiations for British Columbia to provide lumber to Australia at a preferential within-the-Empire rate going well.
