A look at the corner of Waterfront Drive and Heaton, technically in Point Douglas, but for all intents and purposes, a northern extension of the Exchange District. Currently, the highlight of this little nook is 61 Heaton (first three photos), but by this time next year, it’s likely that will change.

I’m not sure how or when this ghost signage emerged, but I hasn’t noticed it until I took these photos back in June. Great sign, and very well preserved too. Down the street is the Brown & Rutherford building (here, seen from Higgins).

This place oozes history, and after shooting it many times over the years, it remains one of my favorite places to shoot in the city.

Yup, more old ones from the archives—some previously unedited, and some reedited. From the top: A couple from the basement of the Downtown Bay before Zeller’s moved in (I’m sure the emptiness down there these days is even more…empty); Westminster Avenue in the heart of Wolseley, Vulcan Ironworks, along with some junked cars on the south side of the building; Fire Roses Flour/Ogilve Mills; St. Boniface Post Office; the alley just north of Princess and McDermot; and teepees at The Forks.

A couple from Point Douglas. That’s St. Andrews Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral (Euclid Avenue, built 1938), followed by a look at the backside of Canadian Pacific Station (Higgins Avenue, built 1904).

Some sites from (and one from slightly off of) Main Street. The Fish Gallery (is it just me, or is there a disproportionate number of fish-related stores on Main Street?), the corner of Main and Cathedral, St. John Sucharsky Cathedral (built 1891), and Tabernacle United Church (Bannerman Avenue, built 1923).

Higgins Avenue. That’s The King’s Hotel in the top two photos, followed by the Disraeli Bridge and Mattress Warehouse.

A look at Logan Avenue, just south of Main Street.

Henry Avenue. A beautiful building, somewhat hidden on a secluded stretch of Henry Avenue.

Some of the great structures in North Point Douglas. From the top: 895, with its whimsical garage door oppening; 831-833 Main Street, looking better than it has in many years, thanks to a nice paint job; Brown and Rutherford on Sutherland Avenue; 187 Sutherland, and finally, a few different angles of the Sutherland Hotel (Main Street).

A gorgeous sunset over Main Street. Just the right conditions for great photos—wet, shiny streets after a storm, residual storm clouds in the sky, and just enough of a break in the clouds to let the sun illuminate everything in golden hour hues. From the top: Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral (built 1952). Next, a cool set of building at Main and Pritchard—Canadian Motorcycle, Tradesman Mechanical, and Friends Auto.

Main Street. Although not as breathtaking as the initial renderings suggested (when are they?), Necchi Commons is a welcome addition to the North Main strip.
