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.

After a tear-down on Ross Avenue, this old signage for Genser’s Furniture made a brief appearance. Once the lot was cleaned up, work began on a new new building that will likely conceal it for another 50 years.

2015 Leftovers

Self Storage, Aikins Street (previously unedited photo from 2015).

Viterra, Coulter Avenue (previously unedited photo from 2015).

Dufferin Avenue (previously unedited photo from 2015).

Pretty much every year I revisit photos from the past that I might have previously overlooked, and this year has been no different. Without all that much new material to edit during the tail end of the cold winter months, I’ve been digging through my old shots from 2015.

A noon-hour Downtown photo walk. Highlights include the 360 Main Street re-cladding, which is coming along quite nicely, and the great new signage at the McKim Building (formerly the Crocus Building, and the Ashdown Hardware Store before that).
