H?tel de Ville de Victoria

Victoria's first city hall was designed in 1875. The building was begun three years later and completed in 1890. The designer was John Teague, an Englishman long resident in Victoria, who was responsible for planning many of the city's early buildings. His city hall was conceived in the Second Empire style popular at the time, with a typical mansard roof tower and rich ornamentation. The building remains one of the best surviving examples of this style in western Canada.

Devant ?tre le premier h?tel de ville de Victoria, ce b?timent a ?t? commerc? en 1878 et termin? en 1890. Les plans ?taient de John Teague, un Anglais qui a longtemps resid? ? Victoria et a qui l'on doit la conception de nombreux b?timents de la premiere epoque de Victoria. Cet h?tel de ville a ?t? r?alis? dans le style qu'on adoptait generalement ? l'epoque pour les ?difices public et que l'on appelle maintenant le style second Empire. Avec son toit en mansarde, sa tour et sa riche ornementation, cet ?difice demeure l'une des meilleurs illustrations de ce style dans l'Ouest du Canada.
