A lovely evening in St. Boniface and St. Vital. No interesting clouds to be found, but nice light nonetheless.

Here’s a series from St. Vital, roughly from St. Mary’s to Dakota and Chesterfield to Beliveau. From the top: Beliveau Shopping Centre, about as charming a strip mall as strip malls can be; a couple of shots from Beliveau Road near Dakota; some seemingly Soviet-era satellites on Chesterfield (I recently posted a couple of black and white shots of these, but I thought I’d revisit the spot and try color); the cold beer vendor on Beliveau; a trio of shots of 660 Dakota; 60 Chesterfield; and last but not least, 30 Chesterfield.

I’m a big fan of this gorgeous new addition (completed in 2014) to St. Vital Park.

St. Vital, looking a little bit more East Berlin than usual (Chesterfield Avenue).

I’m going to come right out and say it. I don’t get the Progress/Prosperity sign in St. Vital (St. Mary’s Road). At all. Is it some sort of cruel joke? The sign—seemingly influenced by the iconic Santa Monica pier signage——is centered over a stairway that literally leads to nowhere. Take a walk down the stairs, if you dare, and you’ll find yourself standing in weeds up your waist. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to move a few feet before the brush will become to thick to move any further.

So what’s the story here? This little strip of St. Mary’s—which feature Marigold Restaurant, Gondola Pizza and a pretty fantastic view—is pretty great. But this unfinished park…or boardwalk…or footpath…or whatever it is… is kind of embarrassing.

Update: Christian Cassidy of West End Dumplings has provided some insight. Turns out the arch is a replica of an old welcome arch that greeted people (and streetcars) into St. Vital, c. 1913. I’m shocked! I had no idea there was an historical basis at all for this thing.

A couple of shots from Dakota Street—a general view from the corner of Dakota and Bishop Grandin, and a shot of Dakota Collegiate.

An evening stroll through the Worthington area of St. Vital. From the top: 660 Dakota; a couple of shots of Dakota Collegiate (Dakota Street); 180 Beliveau, 200 Beliveau, a couple of shots of Kearney Street, and finally a surface lot on Dakota.

Some photos from the Bishop Grandin Greenway, which runs along side—you guessed it—Bishop Grandin. Quite a lovely place for an evening stroll.
