Every now and then I try to pop into the Neon Factory (Main Street north of Alexander). They make it easy—they open their doors to the public on most Saturdays (at least in the summer)—and it’s definitely worth the trip; with signs from many of Winnipeg’s great institutions including Shanghai and Kelekis restaurants, The Blue Note Cafe, and the Alexandria Hotel, the Neon Factory is as close to a Winnipeg History Museum as this city has got.

Top: You can take away the restaurant, and you can even take away the building. But by golly, you can never take away the parking. It’s a Winnipeg Tradition. Bottom: Sumhay at the corner of King and Logan.

Princess Street. A look inside the anachronism that is J. Werier & Co. Ltd., where you’ll find used office equipment alongside teacups, vintage clowns and stuffed weasels, among other things. If you’ve never been, this place is worth checking out. If for nothing else, go to check out the massive, vertigo-inducing open elevator shaft.

Some further reading on the Werier empire can be found here.

Two shots of the same place—one without flash, and one with it. I can’t decide which one I like better. The flash shot has a lot more pop, but there’s something kind of bleak about the non-flash shot that grabs me. The younger me probably would have swapped out the illuminated one-way shot in the flash photo, but…no time for that these days.

A few photo of Rupert Avenue from Princess Street to Main Street on a lovely September morning. From the top: Salvation Army Citadel (built 1900); looking east towards Main Street; looking south from the corner of Rupert and Main; and Thomas Scott Memorial Orange Hall (built 1902) at Rupert and Princess.

The gorgeous Maycock Block (built 1885) on Main Street along side its neighbour across the street (and past a Winnipegtastically gaping parking lot), Martha Street Studio, as well as its neighbour a few doors down, Full House Grocery.

The Bathgate Building (Princess Street, built 1983), one of Winnipeg’s great—and oldest—buildings. This is a re-worked edit of a photo from 2009.

Main Street’s Hotel McLaren (built 1910). Seen better days, but still looking pretty sharp.
