Marion and St. Mary’s

River Arch (near St. Mary’s and Marion).

View from Poulin’s Drive.

Beer Store (Marion Street).

Until recently, I had not realized how unfriendly the St. Mary’s and Marion intersection is. It’s not reflected in these photos, but the intersection (can it even be called an intersection? I’m not sure.) is terrible—almost Portage and Main terrible. You can cross the street, but it’s a real pain, and you invariably have to walk quite a bit out of your way.

A classic Winnipeg example of car first and everything else last.

Video Cellar

St. Mary’s Road. Hard to believe, but one could probably count the number of video stores in town on one (maybe two hands). How many would there have been in Winnipeg at the peak of video? Two hundred? Three hundred? Completely different world.

Scenes From Norwood West

Poulin’s Exterminators on Poulin Drive, and a back lane blizzard on Walmer Street. Not sure if you can get a sense of the cold in this photo, but trust me. It was cold.
