Scope and content

SUPPLIED TITLE OF TAPE(S): Deep Cove and West Saanich Road, 1911-1930 RECORDED: Saanich (B.C.), 1981-09-01 SUMMARY: Arthur Thornton discusses the Deep Cove and West Saanich Road area, 1911-1930. In 1902, his parents came to Victoria, where they were shopkeepers until 1911, when they moved to the 9700 block (present designation) on West Saanich Road, and soon after to Deep Cove. Apart from the period 1916-1921, Mr. Thornton has remained in the Deep Cove area. As a young man, he helped run his parents' farm, and from time to time was employed by other farmers, and by the Sidney Trading Company as a delivery man. He recalls the people he knew and the life style of the period.
