Here’s a look at the interior of the iconic Times Changed High and Lonesome Club (Main Street), which was thankfully saved from the wrecking ball a couple of months ago. More good news: The building that houses the bar, the Fortune Block, will soon be getting the love that it needs in the form of major renovations. This is great news for Winnipeg’s music scene and for Downtown in general.
Sun sets on a warmish day in early January, in and around downtown Winnipeg.
Here’s a look at a collection of fine parking structures in Downtown Winnipeg, where one must never be more than 20 paces away from a place to park. Added bonus: The empty lot in the bottom photot, the former location of the Carlton Inn. Despite the lofty ambition of the recently confirmed True North Square, it would not surprise me one bit if this spot ended up being—you guessed it—another Downtown parkade.
A couple of shots (taken from out the sunroof of my car, I believe) at Vaughan and St. Mary.
A few shots from the South Portage area, taken in mid-July. It was a night that looked like it could produce a spectacular sunset; although that didn’t materialize, I was still pleased with some of the results.
A few photos from the South Portage section of Downtown.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a true object d’art—in terms of architecture, likely the best example in the city. However, the building is rarely photographed as a building within the context of the city. Typical photos of the building place it as a stand-alone object with little-to-no environmental context or as the oddly disproportionate foreground of Winnipeg’s skyline.
In these photos I’ve attempted to place the building within the context of the browns and beiges of Downtown’s South Portage neighborhood. When viewed from these angles, the enormous scale of the building is magnified, as is the outlandish (in a good way) design. It’s truly a building like no other in Winnipeg.
