stands on the front lawn of
the Empress Hotel,
(beside the Belmont Building
showing through the arbutus tree).
These historic buildings are located on Government Street
in the heart of Victoria's inner harbour.
The Empress Hotel, designed by Francis Rattenbury,
was built during Emily Carr's lifetime and very near
to Emily's family home.
And, wouldn't you know it, Emily and Woo happened to wander by
while I was working on this painting ...
