Some Portage Avenue photos, ranging from Young Street to Burnell Street. From the top: Foodfare (expect the best); the corner of Portage and Young, where the Sound Exchange somehow survives; the Cash Money/Russian Deli, beside the now sign-less National Typewriter Building; Eben Convenience; and finally, the relatively new coffee house/pub/music venue, The Good Will—a fantastic addition to this stretch of Portage Avenue, despite its confusing name and near-invisible signage.

Portage Avenue. I’m glad to see that this has turned into a pretty interesting little strip; I don’t recall there being anything of interest in it when I lived nearby around five years ago. Now, between Jonnies and Cafe Ce Soir, it’s got at least two legitimate go-to spots.

Portage Avenue. When I lived in Wolseley (from around 2002-2010), this was my go-to Italian restaurant. Decent food, decent prices. I miss it. That’s 807 Portage Avenue beside it, with the sunlight dancing off the corner of the building.

The end of summer is approaching, and I haven’t been to Sargent Sundae (Portage Avenue) once this year. I will have to remedy that….

Portage Avenue. A bit of an oddball storefront in one the many unmistakable early Safeway buildings dotted around the city.

More dusk shots from Portage Avenue. Can you tell how much I love this time of day for shooting? From the top: Looking through the Portage Avenue trees towards Manitoba Hydro (built 2008); another look at the Hydro Building behind one of the Portage Avenue Walkways at Portage and Carlton; the Carlton Building (built 1912); Portage Place (built 1987); the Boyd Building (built 1912); Newport Centre (now Rogers, built 1970); looking west from Hargrave; and finally, looking easy from Hargrave.

Some more Portage Avenue dusk shots. From the top: A general eastward view down Portage Avenue; a couple of shots of Manitoba Hydro (built 2008); Metropolitan Theatre (Donald Street, built 1991, renovated 2013), looking good, but in dire need of a marquee; and the Air Canada Building (Portage and Smith, built 1985).

Portage Avenue. Dusk. A warm, later winter night. The top four shots are looking east towards Portage and Main from Donald; Bottom shot, of course, is the MTS Centre.

Some dusk shots on and around Portage Avenue. From the top: An east view from Portage and Garry, with Dominion News in the foreground; The St. Regis Hotel (Smith Street, originally constructed 1909); and a couple of shots of the southwest corner of Portage and Smith, where the Radisson Hotel (built 1969) stands.

Portage and Smith. A nice sunset on a warmish February day.
