172/365 - Link To The Past
Warning: Unpleasant 365 Description Ahead Today I found these shoes and was reminded of an incident I don’t really talk about anymore. I wrote this many years ago to get it out of my head. The writing is awful, the spelling is off and there are about four times as many commas as is needed but it certainly helped me at the time. If you like, please enjoy a glimpse into my gloomy past. Could I have done more? This is the question I asked myself as we drove home from the River Delta in a car that had one fewer passenger than it did when we left home that morning. His name was Brodee. I’d only known him a few months, and not that well, as he was the brother of a friend of a friend. A bit of a geek, Brodee was a respectable man with a plethora of knowledge in just about any field.There was not a soul on this earth that could meet the man and not find him to be anything less than wonderfully pleasant. I stood on the dock, looking into the water. I was merely a guest on this trip to the River-Delta, and yet I felt as if I’d grown a tight bond with this family I’d met just weeks before. Although I couldn’t see her face when she said it, I can still hear Colleen, Brodee’s mother, yelling to her husband “Frazer, he’s been down there for five minuets, He can’t survive that long!” Her voice was high, shrieking in a pitch only a mother can achieve when one of her own is in danger. Frazer, Brodee’s father, stayed calm. As always. * * * The day I met Frazer, he offered me, a 19 year old boy, some sipping whiskey after a delicious meal he and his wife had both made together. The boys I had arrived with were off playing video games and Colleen was washing dishes, leaving Frazer and I to our own devices at the dinner table with a bottle of expensive whiskey. We discussed the past, we discussed the future. Frazer told stories of the old days, and offered time-forged advice for the new. He was the perfect conversationalist, raising his voice for the exciting parts, but not before lowering it for effect. He would even let a slight smile slip when I nodded my head in appreciation of his wise words. To this day, I strive to emulate his method of looking into my eyes for the perfect length of time; long enough to touch my soul with his soft voice and gentle stare, but not so long as to make me feel uncomfortable. In retrospect, I now realize that I took more lessons in speech from that ten minute conversation than I did in an entire semester of class devoted to the very subject. Brodee walked in from the living room and took a seat next to his father. They held a brief conversation, smiling and poking each other, giggling like boys a decade younger than I. Eventually the topic of Brodee’s upcoming, very extended vacation came to the table. I happened to be looking at Frazer when the news hit his ears, and in that moment I saw loss. The smile hiding behind his giant, fuzzy beard disappeared as his eyes dropped to the table, avoiding eye contact with his soon-to-be-gone son. I will never forget that look. I saw that man’s heart break a little. I will never forget it because I’ve seen it twice. * * * Frazer’s eyes dropped to the Dock, searching back and forth along the planks for an answer that wasn’t there. He didn’t know what to do, none of us did. The air carried a sense of hurried panic, a rushed inability to help. He’d been down there five minutes. I remembered reading somewhere that although the submerged human body cannot remain conscious for more than four or five minuets, it can survive for up to ten. I forced the screeching voice of Brodee’s mother to a lull as I stood on the dock, trying to calculate the flow of the current and possibly figure out where Brodee might be. I had five minuets. * * * When Brodee went under the first time, nobody flinched. There were now only seven of us sitting in lawn chairs on the beach now that Brodee had jumped to his feet and into the murky, green water. It wasn’t the most majestic dive but it was enough to clear him of the shallow bank that extended about two or three feet out from the water’s edge. He didn’t surface at first, but eventually he floated up, face-down, arms and legs out like a skydiver falling through the air. Brodee had a habit of sitting out in the water in this manner. "It's relaxing" he had explained earlier. The sun was shining, and we were tired from a morning of wave-running. We all sat with a common lethargic stare over the reflective water where Brodee was floating. Seven witnesses watched him go under for the second time. To this day I still cannot pinpoint the amount of time that went by before somebody spoke. “Something’s wrong”. It was Kelby, his little brother. Another moment passed, and three of us stood up. Kelby cast his glasses aside and was the first to hit water, diving in at a full run. I hit next and went under to search the area. Having found nothing but floating twigs and plant-life, I surfaced, hoping
Green Block - 1889
1210 - 1212 Broad Street, Victoria, BC Statement of Significance Description of Historic Place The Green Block is a two-storey brick structure that stands at the corner of Broad Street and Trounce Alley in downtown Victoria. This Italianate-style building features two richly-decorated facades, one of which runs along Trounce Alley. A square-domed tower marks the corner of Trounce Alley, and a decorative parapet marks the Broad Street entrance to the second floor offices. Heritage Value The Green Block is valued as a tangible expression of Victoria’s resource-era economic boom that occurred in the 1880s, reflecting the tumultuous economic growth that was largely due to the exploitation of coal in Nanaimo, timber resources in Southern Vancouver Island and the completion of the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway. When the Hudson’s Bay Company sold off the land that provided access to architect and builder Thomas Trounce’s property, he established Trounce Alley in 1859, a convenient thoroughfare between Government and Broad Streets that also provided additional retail frontage and increased its commercial value. The Green Block, and a mirror image building that originally stood to the south, flanked the eastern entry to Trounce Alley and were built for Alexander Alfred Green (circa 1833-1891) in 1889. Green was the manager of Garesche, Green & Company, which had taken over the Wells, Fargo & Company’s Bank in 1873 and was the largest private banking house in British Columbia in the 1880s. During a major fire in October 1910 that destroyed the Spencers’s Arcade, Trounce Alley marked the northern reach of the damage, the southern building was destroyed, replaced in 1911-12 by the much taller Central Building. The surviving Green Block was spared, and subsequently became known as the Exchange Building, due to the tenancy of the Victoria Stock Exchange from 1928 to 1930. The Green Block is a fine example of the Late Victoria-era Italianate style, the work of local architect John Teague (1835-1902). Born in Cornwall, England, Teague followed the lure of gold, first in California and then in the Fraser Valley. After some time in the gold fields, he settled in Victoria in 1860, where he lived and worked until his death. Teague served the city as councillor in 1885, and as mayor for two terms, 1892 and 1893. During his prolific career, Teague designed over 350 buildings, mostly in Victoria. He was adept at all the current architectural styles, ranging from Italianate to Queen Anne Revival. For many years he was the architect for the Royal Navy at the Dockyard and Hospital at Esquimalt; his clients included most of the city’s leading businessmen for whom he built commercial as well as residential buildings. Four of his buildings in Victoria: City Hall, #1 Centennial Square 1878-91; St. Ann’s Academy, 835 Humboldt Street 1886; Church of Our Lord, 626 Blanshard Street, 1875-76; and the Pemberton Memorial Operating Room, 1900 Fort Street, 1896; and five buildings in the Historic Naval District, Esquimalt, 1888-91, are designated as National Historic Sites. Teague also designed the nearby six-storey Driard Hotel, 1151 Broad Street, 1891-92 (now a reconstructed facade), probably his finest work and the most prestigious hotel north of San Francisco. The Green Block features distinctive design elements, including a square-domed corner tower, representing how the popular Italianate style could be adapted in eclectic ways for commercial purposes. In recognition of the material and social values of the historic buildings of Old Town, the City of Victoria has established policies and incentives that encourage their adaptive re-use and improve their economic viability. Rehabilitated buildings such as this play a critical role in revitalizing the downtown economy, in providing commercial space and in environmental sustainability. Source: City of Victoria Planning Department Character-Defining Elements Key elements that define the heritage character of the Green Block include its: - prominent corner location, built to the property lines at Trounce Alley and Broad Street - continuous commercial and retail uses - commercial form, scale and massing, as expressed by its two-storey height, rectangular plan with flat roof, two main facades with irregular window spacing on the second floor, entry to the second floor from Broad Street marked by a decorative pediment above and at the parapet; and prominent square-domed corner tower - masonry construction, with brick walls, parged details and granite threshold at entry - features of the Italianate style, including segmental-arched window openings with inverted-U hoods, pilasters, continuous sheet-metal cornice above storefront, running bands of brick detailing, bracketed upper storey sheet-metal cornice, and a square-domed corner tower, echoed in smaller piers along the parapets - double-hung one-over-one wooden-sash windows on the upper floor - interior features, such as a seco
