History – Emily Carr & House of All Sorts
Emily Carr spent most of her life in British Columbia. Her family led a conservative English life in Victoria.
“The attic was no older than the rest of the house. Yet, from the first to me it was very old, old in the sense of dearness, … as far back as memory goes. That was the way with my attic. …[It] became my special corner – the one place really my own.”
