Artist's Description

Located in the capital city of Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

The British Columbia Parliament Buildings began operation officially during 1898, despite many problems, including exceeding budget—the original budget was $500,000; the final amount was $923,000—
Francis Rattenbury, a recent English immigrant, 25 years old, entered the contest and signed his drawings with the pseudonym “A B.C. Architect”. He progressed to the second round, signing his drawing “For Queen and Province” and eventually won the competition.
Atop the central dome is a gold-covered statue of Captain George Vancouver

This beautiful building is silhouetted in the evening with beautiful white lights to emphasize it’s shape. We love it!
