Big changes coming to this portion of Downtown over the coming years. Construction is set to begin over the next little while on what will be Winnipeg’s tallest building. Although I don’t usually believe these things until the shovels hit the ground, I’m looking forward to something—anything—taking the place of the 40-year eye-sore on the corner of Main and Graham.

2012 Revisited

Lincoln Hotel (McPhillips Street). New edit of a photo from 2012.

Here are a few previously unseen photos from 2012. Lots of changes since then: The skyline has changed, thanks to the addition of a few more towers and the 360 Main re-cladding (ie; the update from late-7os drab to early-80s drab). The Yellow Warehouse has been demolished. Valley Flowers has closed its doors. True North Square is no longer a vacuous parking lot. And the Lincoln Hotel is no more.

Overall, I’d say we’ve come out on top.

Year of the Caterpillar

Forest tent caterpillars, River Heights.

Forest tent caterpillars, River Heights.

It was a strange spring in Winnipeg. At one point, early in June, the city was crawling with three separate species of moth caterpillars—forest tent caterpillars (pictured here, outside my front door), cankerworms, and elm spanworms. Messy, but quite spectacular in their own disgusting way,

Pazsteaks (William Stephenson Way).

If you’re a regular visitor to this site, you might have noticed a spike in the number of Nutty Club shots, as well as others shot in the vicinity of Shaw Park. About a year ago, my office moved to the area, so I often find myself strolling the area during the lunch hour. There’s something about those Nutty Club buildings; I find them irresistible.
