In just the right light, Chinatown can look pretty cool. It’s seen better days, though, as this post may demonstrate. The first three photos are centered around Princess and Alexander, where The Bathgate Block (Princess Avenue, built 1883) has been sitting empty for years. Next, the vinyl signage of Yea Dim Dum (Pacific Avenue) suggest that the owner doesn’t expect the establishment to be in business for long enough to invest in a real sign. Next, the unexpected, but functional City Radiator (Pacific Avenue). And finally, the empty weed lot where the long-time Winnipeg institution Ham-N-Eggs Grill once stood.
