A couple of interesting structures in St. Boniface. First, Springs Christian Academy (Formerly King George V School, Youville Street, built 1915). Next, Holy Family Church (Archibald Street, built 1965), one of Etienne Gaboury’s less impressive Winnipeg buildings. In Gaboury’s defense, it looks like some unfortunate changes have been made to the building at some point over the last few years.

I really like the Old Transcona Downtown strip, and the Kern Park neighborhood in general. It’s full of interesting structures, and really feels like it’s an independent little town (which it once was). From the top: The Royal George Hotel (Regent Avenue); Trancona Historical Museum (Regent Avenue, built 1927); St. Michael’s Catholic Church (Day Street); Whistle Pig Drive Inn (Victoria Avenue East); the impressive Archambault Pavilion (Regent Avenue); and finally, a little further off the main strip, another unusual church by Etienne Gaboury, Blessed Sacrement Church (Wabasha Street, built 1966).

A couple of interesting buildings in the Windsor Park area: Canadian Holy Martyrs Church (Dussault Avenue, built 1961), by architect Etienne Gaboury, and Fire Station No. 15 (Autumnwood Drive).

A couple of great buildings on Provencher: Old St. Boniface City Hall (built 1905) and 227 Provencher, one of Etienne Gaboury’s lesser-known structures.

St. Boniface Cathedral (Rebuilt)

De la Cathedrale Avenue (1972).

A couple of shots today of the reconstructed St. Boniface Cathedral, one of Étienne Gaboury’s (the best architect out of Winnipeg?) more subdued projects.

On a completely unrelated side note, I’m very happy to see The Winnipeg Free Press back on the shelves this morning. Without a newspaper to read at lunchtime, I’ve been forced to read old office copies of Us and People magazines, and I’m pretty sure I’ve lost brain mass as a result.

Now my only hope is that this pork scandal (Porkgate?) goes away, and fast. It’s really, really boring.
