The inland waterway of Victoria commonly called 'The Gorge' but also known as Victoria Arm is the subject of Dennis Minaker's self-published Gorge of Summers: A History of Victoria's Inland Waterway (1998) that was sold via Royal BC Museum Books. Chapter One covers the early days of Craigflower Farm and Craigflower Manor but Minaker is chiefly concerned with the period from 1890 to 1930. There is material on the collapse of the Point Ellice Bridge in 1896.
