A Few From Portage Avenue

pianoscanadian-super-shopkings-theatrekings-theatre-2

A few from Portage Avenue, including the iconic Pianos signage, Canadian Super Shop, and The old Kings Theatre which, incidentally, was one of my go-to movie theatres as a kid. Among many others, I saw E.T. and Empire Strikes Back there.

Silver and Brooklyn

A couple of shots from the corner of Silver and Brooklyn. First, 443 Brooklyn, which looks like it must have been a commercial building at some point, but is now residential, and its neighbor, Auto Extreme.

Portage Avenue.
Pretty great little block on Portage Avenue, near Assiniboine Park. Almost unbelievably, over the last few years this stretch of Portage has become one of the more interesting sections of the storied street.

Meanwhile, buildings at Portage near Main continue to crumble (Avenue and Hample Buildings), and over at Portage and Broadway, a big, dead, chain-link-fenced Field of Dreams will soon be “built.”

These are not good times for Portage Avenue.

Another lost Winnipeg icon. At least this one was put to good use.
