Good signage lives!
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.
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.
