Where and what to eat in Victoria, British Columbia
Giant waffles, served with bacon, berries and lashings of maple syrup. Just the thought of it now has me nearly dribbling over my laptop (sorry). A week of eating like this though would really flummox my fight against the pounds. The food in Canada, however, was so very good throughout that the battle was lost before it had begun. And I indulged… a lot.
Hats were considered an essential fashion accessory in the 1950s. The two main styles during this time were small skull-caps, or wide saucer hats. A hat such as this would be suitable for a cocktail party or dinner. This hat was designed by the Danish-born Aage Thaarup (1906–1987), who moved to London in the 1930s. Thaarup was one of the most successful milliners of his age, and also designed for the Queen.
