Thanks for posting it,.We appreciate the input,.....I've found many streetcar pictures and Bus pics,.I've posted some ,cause I know a few of the members like yourself are knowledable about them.......                          HF&RV

Les & Jean-Marie, I checked the Internet Hockey database, , for Victoria-based teams and it does not show a team in Victoria between 1920-1940.    This a great site for various types of  hockey data but is not 100% complete and a team in Victoria may have existed in this timeframe.   Ron Chapdelaine

Thanks Ron,.......I haven't had a chance to checkout the site yet,but I will later on tonight,  it seems that Victoria BC as well as Vancouver moved from having pro teams to semi-pro along the way,...... and not until the Canucks entered the NHL did the Westcoast have a Pro team again (I'm not sure they do, even now,,,,,,hahahahaha)                                                                                     hf&rv
