A few shots from the North End (specifically, the Lord Selkirk Park neighborhood), centered around Selkirk Avenue. For a bit of context, these were taken back in September—that’s how far behind I am in my posts right now.
Salter and Flora. It’s hard to miss this place as you’re driving down Salter Street—proof that a fresh coat of paint can really make a positive difference.
Here’s a series of views from the Slaw Rebchuk Bridge, taken on a gorgeous afternoon back in early September.
A few from the North Main Strip. From the top: Honesty Sportswear; Grand Opera House (built 1908), looking a little less than grand these days; and 796 & 800 Main.
A warm, foggy morning on Main Street back in mid-August.
Siltex on Sutherland Avenue, along with its squat, anonymous neighbor.
Body Repairs & Painting (Henry Avenue) and Siltex (Sutherland Avenue).
Grand Opera House (Main Street and Jarvis, built 1908).
A gorgeous afternoon centered at Sutherland and King in the Lord Selkirk Park neighborhood. I probably wouldn’t bring any out-of-town visitors to the area, but still, there are some cool warehouse buildings in the area, namely Orloff Metals and Walter Woods, both on Sutherland. It’s also a unique vantage point from which to see Winnipeg’s skyline.
A wet and miserable day in Winnipeg. That’s George’s Burgers at Selkirk and Salter, and the Legion on Sargent Avenue.
