Looking back

Sooke resident Gordon Stewart is sharing these pictures of the region before the turn of the 20th century. The first picture shows his grandfather Franze Willie setting out for a day fishing at Sooke Lake with Fritz Wille and friend Leon Borde around 1892 at Sooke Lake. The second picture is of a logging camp, also at Sooke Lake, around 1880. Both locations are now underwater after the flooding of the lake about 40 years ago, said Stewart.
