A few shots from around Corydon, including the new (to me anyways) Unique Bunny, Fort Rouge Travel, Daily Burgers and Falafel Place.

divers-den

Pembina Highway. As a kid, I thought this was the coolest building in the city, and I’d always be on the lookout for those bright blue waves when driving down Pembina. Funny thing is, up until recently, I thought this place was called Driver’s Den. I know, I know, it makes no sense. But that’s how I read it once—maybe 30 years ago—and my brain never corrected the error, until recently when I noticed that the business was headed to St. Mary’s Avenue.

Here are a couple of photos taken from the condo on Wellington at Cockburn. The first one is looking southeast towards a cluster of mid-rises on south Osbourne, and the second one shows the MTS building on Corydon with Pembina Highway in the distance.

It’s going to be a nice week. Last chance to get your Goog on.

I’ve posted photos of this view a few times over the years now, but why not? It’s one of my favorite views of the city. If you squint your eyes a bit, this could almost pass for Vancouver. Okay, Vancouver in the early 70s, but still Vancouver.

Some shots from the Corydon area. From the top: River Osborne Community Centre (Pembina and Corydon), a remnant of the atrocious Metro Plaza (1966-1987) by the usually great Etienne Gaboury; Fort Rouge Travel, in the old Union Bank of Canada Building (built 1919); and a couple of classic Corydon storefronts, Corydon Hardware and Peking Chinese Foods.

The gorgeous McKim Court (River and Osborne, built 1911). As nice on the inside as it is the outside. For good measure, the bottom photo (Fude, Kawaii Crepe, etc.) is across the street and slightly south of McKim Court.

A couple of shots from River Avenue: The First Church of Christ Scientist (built 1910), finally converted into condo after several years of construction, and the cluster of condos and apartments farther up River towards Wellington Crescent.

Two defunct eateries—Kelekis on Main Street, and Dingo’s on Corydon. One of them a Winnipeg institution, beloved by generations, and the other… not so much.

Two of my favorite buildings in Osborne Village: McKim Court (aka Osborne River Block (Osborne Street, built 1909) and The Lonsdale (River Avenue). Both previously unedited photos from 2008.
