Did another one-day road trip back in early March, this time up through the Interlake. Part 1 includes stops in Selkirk, Clandeboye, Winnipeg and Gimli.
A brief walk through the eastern tip of the River-Osborne area. The notable photo here is the first one—161 Mayfair Avenue—which was demolished shortly after the photo was taken. Simple me, I naively assumed the fencing around the stately old houses was indicative of a forthcoming restorative effort. Nope.
Here’s a followup to yesterday’s new-edit/re-edit megapost—some re-worked photos of Winnipeg Beach from 2009-2012.
It happens every year. January’s sustained -30 keeps me in the house unable to shoot, so I turn to the archives. The above shmorg is roughly a 50/50 split of previously unedited photos and newly edited photos, originally taken in 2009-2012. One of these days I’m going to do a post explaining why I re-edit certain photos, but for now, enjoy.
Here’s a look at the interior of the iconic Times Changed High and Lonesome Club (Main Street), which was thankfully saved from the wrecking ball a couple of months ago. More good news: The building that houses the bar, the Fortune Block, will soon be getting the love that it needs in the form of major renovations. This is great news for Winnipeg’s music scene and for Downtown in general.
