1937 Advertisement For Vancouver Island Coach Lines

HISTORIC TRANSPORTATION ADVERTISEMENTS

We came across this 1937 advertisement from Vancouver Island Coach Lines which, at that time, ran public transit routes in Victoria as well as inter city bus routes on Vancouver Island.

This advertisement shows Douglas Street in downtown Victoria looking north from Yates Street, with several buildings which are still standing today. Note the emphasis on “Hot water heaters [that] radiate a pleasant warmth throughout the inviting interiors” of the buses.
