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.
A look at a lovely stretch of Manitoba Avenue in Downtown Selkirk, Manitoba.
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.
A bit all over the place today. First, a couple of shots from a lovey winter day at The Forks; Boyd Autobody (Pembina Highway); and a couple of previously unseen shots—Nutty Club (Westbrook Street) and Towne Cinema (Notre Dame Avenue).
Back from a wonderful week in Vancouver. Came home to a blizzard, but hey, such is the life of a Winnipegger.
I’m now way behind in my posting, which means there are lots of winter photos still to come. But for now, I’ve got one last batch of old ones for you. These ones are from 2009. I think. I’ve lost track. They’re either previously unedited or new edits of previously edited ones. Again, I’ve lost track.
From the top: Welcome to the North End (Nepon Auto Body, Salter Street); Chinese Food Delivery Service (McPhillips Street), McGreggor Armoury (McGreggor Street); Merchants Hotel (Selkirk Avenue); Pop Grocery (McGreggor Avenue); the old Queen’s Theatre (Selkirk Avenue); Brooklands Hotel (Keewatin Street); the old Winnipeg Airport (Wellington Avenue); and Viterra (Coulter Avenue).
More from the archives. These ones are all from 2008 or 2009. The majority are previously unedited, but a couple of them are new (presumably better) edits of previously posted shots.
St. James Street.
Notre Dame Avenue (built 1981). It’s been far too long since I’ve seen a film at the Towne Cinema. I spent a lot of Saturday afternoons at this place when I was a kid, and I’ll always have a soft spot for it.
A trio of old West End gems. First, Wild Strawberry on Sargent Avenue. Next, the Minto Armoury (St. MAtthews Avenue, built 1914). And last, a photo I’ve title Boarded Up on Burnell. Both of these photos are re-worked versions of photos from 2009.
A lovely winter evening in the Luxton area. Tenderloin Meats and Beth Jacob, both on the east side of Main Street.
