This visitor’s map of Victoria, British Columbia admittedly wouldn’t have been of much use to residents of the region. It was issued as a cooperative advertising effort between Sylvester U Drive (a rental car company) and Gray Line bus tours. Recommended automobile routes are highlighted in red, with Buchart’s Gardens boldly called out with a large arrow.

Steamship lines are also noted and a small captioned vignette in the upper left advertises ‘U-Fly’ planes offered by B.C. Air Lines. Suggested hotels, shops, and restaurants, as well as additional information on the Bucharts and Sunken Gardens, are provided on the verso.
