Upstarts and Outcasts

Victoria’s Not-So-Proper Past

The popular view of Victoria’s genteel history is destroyed in Upstarts and Outcasts. The city’s pioneers also included madams, murderers, seamstresses, and saloon keepers. Each one, whether upstanding citizen or impudent criminal, contributed to life in the little settlement perched on the Pacific. This rich collection of stories show that Victoria was certainly not as prim and proper as legends would have us believe.
