KVR,
 
The pic showing the oil tanks and lack of condos.  The one where you are standing on the bridge.  Can you position yourself in this shot for me.  I can't quite figure out where you are in the shot.  Is that the short birdge after the blue bridge. Those tanks were removed, yes??  So much has changed since then, and I only moved here a year ago!  
 
Why is almost everyone on this board in their early thirties ??   I think we have struck on a marketing demographic!  
 
Thanks again for the great shots!

I was talking to my grandmother on the subject and she remembers a paint factory near Slades that was served by the E and N at one time.

OK, thanks. I'm going to be getting some pictures of the area for my project. It's similar to the KVR Mileboards written by Joe Smuin.

The platform still remains. That station was actually the Victoria station, it was on the site of the original 1886 Victoria(Russell's) station. The Esquimalt station is located at the end of Halowell Rd. in View Royal.

if you recall.there used to be a spur branching off from the street by the station ....it served that white warehouse that you can see in the photo and an additional warehouse located where you see the lowrise "villa" style condos in the background-right around the esquimalt road crossing.
