Today I’m featuring a 1928 4-panel Triangle Tours brochure. The Victoria tourism market was — and still is — highly competitive and so companies fought tooth and nail for business. All potential punters arrived by steamer and Triangle Tours took advantage of the famous Triangle route between Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle. Many visitors only had a brief layover and so all companies offered a city tour that guaranteed to have you back in time for your outgoing journey.
Similar to Veteran’s Tours, Triangle Tours offered several itineraries including a deluxe city, mountain and sea tour that included a drive over the Malahat, a ferry ride across Saanich Inlet and a visit to both Butchart Gardens and the Dominon Observatory.
By 1928 Triangle Tours was operated by C&C Taxi Service. In the mid-1940’s C&C launched White Line Tours although I’m not clear if this was a new venture or a rebranding of Triangle Tours. When the Victoria airport opened in the early 1940’s C&C won the bus contract and expanded their fleet. C&C Taxi is still in business today as Bluebird Cabs.
