A to Z Challenge: B is for Beacon Street (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, B is for Beacon Street!

Here is a Google map showing where Beacon Street is located in James Bay.


Beacon Street is one block, stretching from Douglas Street by the park to St. Andrews Street.

What I could find out about Beacon Street:

Not a lot.  I imagine its name came from Beacon Hill Park.  Like other streets in James Bay that are close to the park, the park end is apartment buildings, but as you move away from the park, you find more houses, most of them older.  There are, interestingly enough, no registered Heritage houses on Beacon Street.

What I would like to introduce you to is the Beacon Drive In!  This has been a main-stay of Victoria since the 1950s, and their ice-cream (and milkshakes) are amazing.  You definitely have to check it out if you’re ever here!

Here are some pictures I took of Beacon Street last summer.

Looking up from the park end.

The apartment buildings on the park end.

Looking back towards the park.

Even the elves have a place on Beacon Street!

What else do you want to know about Beacon Street?  Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!
