A Fishing Holiday with the Dunsmuirs. In August 1913, a young English visitor enjoyed a two-week fishing trip up the east coast of Vancouver Island, sailing on James Dunsmuir’s yacht, TSSY Dolaura.

Social historian Dr. Diana Pedersen will discuss Ivan Chinnery’s newly discovered travel diary that records his impressions of coastal settlements and his days of fishing and camping with the Dunsmuir family.
