Travel with the Roscoes: Amazing Journeys.
1490 Fairfield Rd, Victoria, BC V8S 1E8, Canada
Exactly 150 years ago, in 1868, Francis Roscoe was on his fourth trip, travelling from Victoria to England, via Panama. He was away from Victoria for 7 1/2 months before he returning to Ross Bay Villa and his family.
Come and hear about this trip, and the other nine excurdions the Roscoe family made – to San Francisco, London, Paris, Zurich, New York and Ottawa – between 1861 and 1879, with all the trials and tribulations of travelling in the age of sail and steam through the jungles of Panama or by the brand-new trans-continental railway through the largely unexplored American frontier. The sights, the hotels, the dinners, the storms and the dangers are all recounted for your enjoyment.
Stuart Stark will be your travel guide, as you Travel with the Roscoes on Thursday, May 17, 2018.
