Lewis Street Heritage

Have you ever imagined what it was like to live on your street a hundred years ago? Have you tried to picture the people who would have been your neighbours if you could be magically transported back in time?

Always a reason to celebrate!

This summer at the James Bay Market, as always, we will be celebrating weekly as the appearance of gifts from the earth grows in abundance, thanks to the incredible efforts of our farmers. Watch as an ever-increasing variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers arrive throughout the season.

Ignorati: Horse carriages and more

They are at it again. This time it is the quaint horse carriages which decorate James Bay and slow down the traffic. But it is not the loss of precious seconds that annoys our councillor. No, it is concern for the horses!

If you have been following the updates we share in each issue of the JBB, you probably know that we, the Victoria Health Co-op, have funding for a part-time Nurse Practitioner (NP).

James Bay was once very rich in butterflies. In the 1890s, WH Danby reported that “millions of butterflies” swarmed the meadows around Beacon Hill and along the sea cliffs; some species even formed “clouds” of thousands of individuals. It must have been a spectacular sight.
