  • Description

    It's been ten years since Victoria, British Columbia abolished the "bobbys" helmet once worn by policemen in the city. The once-familiar sigh has again been seen on Victoria streets. The policeman who looks like a London bobby is just that. He is Constable Norman Niblo who has been sent to Canada to promote tourist interest in Britain. Victoria -- famous as a little bit of old England is the starting point of the country-wide tour. As for Constable Niblo, he said he felt quite at home as he wandered the streets of Victoria meeting the citizens. Some were pleasantly surprised to see the Bobby -- while others thought he was just another policeman.
