In the centre, two ranger patrols are sitting and standing on a rock respectively. On the bottom border of the print, key landmarks are listed including the Songhees Village (of the Lək̓ʷəŋən people), Police barracks, Victoria District Church, Hudson's Bay Company's Fort Victoria, Brit Strait forward, Governer's residence, James Bay Bridge, Government buildings, and entrance to the harbour.
