A Princess in 1941, She Traveled to Both Victoria and Vancouver, B.C., Canada

My favorite Rose Festival memories include a trip to both Victoria and Vancouver, B.C., Canada during the summer of 1941.

The court and our court committee drove up in the Rose Festival convertibles, stopping at Fort Lewis and then heading to Seattle, where we boarded the Princess Louise Cruise ship overnight to Victoria.

We toured the beautiful gardens in Victoria and they had a big banquet at the Victoria Hotel where we stayed overnight. The next day we drove on to Vancouver, B.C., where we appeared in their "Victory Parade."
