Welcome. Klahowya. This weblog of Oak Bay history was established to advance a notion of local history that includes family history and geography. The approach is evolving and experimental.
Oak Bay happens to be my Place. These articles are on historical subjects who resonate to my interest in the Local. Most of the subjects aren’t history-makers. Although a few shakers and movers have passed this way. All are interesting in some way.
In time the articles will compose a mosaic of narratives to accompany a book that will provide a chronological overview.
The articles presented here are works in progress, undertaken in no particular order. Some are manifestly incomplete; I work on them as time allows.
