A quick look at La Tour Eiffel and its surroundings on Goulet Street, in Central St. Boniface.
A lovely evening in St. Boniface and St. Vital. No interesting clouds to be found, but nice light nonetheless.
After all these years, it never fails to amaze me when I stumble upon new (to me) and interesting (again, to me) places. I must have driven past these streets in Central St. Boniface (between Des Meurons and the Seine River), but I’d never thought to drive down them until now. I’m not saying I found the Taj Mahal or anything, but I love character commercial buildings like these ones, especially when they’re relatively hidden in neighborhoods that are predominantly residential. Discoveries like this remind me just how huge Winnipeg is.
A few shots from the St. Boniface Industrial area.
Last archives post for a long, long time. These ones are all from 2011-12. From the top: Thunderbird Restaurant (McPhillips Street); Club St. B. (Dumoulin Street); Portage and Donald (during demolitions in preparation for the new Alt Hotel); Albert Hotel/St. Charles Hotel; a warming hut/thingamajig on the Red River; thrift store (Main Street).
Here are a few shots from the east side of the city—east of the Red River, that is. First, Redi-Mart (Talbot Avenue); 347 Dupuy in Mission Industrial; and Acme Welding (Mission Street).
Here’s a rather old-school looking place on Taché Avenue. They don’t make them like this any more!
