  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Amateur.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: The architect most identified with Victoria's charming identity today as a relic of English colonialism and imperial splendour was also an amateur photographer and enthusiastic investor in the Bennett Lake and Klondyke Navigation Company. He personally inspected the Bennett southern terminus for the three Victoria-built steam vessels that traversed the lake and connected with Whitehorse and Dawson. Rattenbury brought back photographs from his trip which were published in the BC Mining Record.
