Kapyong Barracks, the most covetedand contentious—land in all of Winnipeg. Will the saga ever end? Perhaps, but I have my doubts that it will be any time soon.

The Birtle Indian Residential School stands in the northeast corner of Birtle, Manitoba. Built in 1932 as a replacement for a facility that had been destroyed by fire (residential schools in the area dated back to 1882), and closed since 1972, the school is little more than a ruin itself.

Up until recently,  if you were in the market for a broken down facility that was home to one of the worst atrocities in Canadian history, it could have been yours for a low low price via Kijiji.  The facility is no longer listed as for sale.

If we can all agree that Target Canada the largest gaffe in Canadian retail history, then we can probably also agree that the infrastructure that went into its Polo Park location was the largest gaffe in Winnipeg retail history. I do take a positive out of this: As long as the giant building stands empty, in its overgrown, weed infested lot, developers will likely steer clear of further soul-crushing, city-killing big-box development.

This place oozes history, and after shooting it many times over the years, it remains one of my favorite places to shoot in the city.

Ness Avenue

old-safewaycar-washfrozen-creek

Took a drive up Ness Avenue. I never realized long of a road it is—it just keeping going and going. From the top: An abandoned Safeway; and abandoned car wash; and Sturgeon Creek frozen under January snow.

Cading’s Restaurant

Arlington Street, just north of Stella. Looks like Cading’s Restaurant/Laundromat/Mountain Pie Company (as well as the neighboring corner store) has seen better days.

A trio of old West End gems. First, Wild Strawberry on Sargent Avenue. Next, the Minto Armoury (St. MAtthews Avenue, built 1914). And last, a photo I’ve title Boarded Up on Burnell. Both of these photos are re-worked versions of photos from 2009.

Some of the interesting structures in the Talbot-Grey section of Elmwood. From the top: Tesse Handy Mart, Dr. Saw, Elite Metal Products, a strange building at the corner of Talbot and Gateway, St. Sava Orthodox Church (all on Talbot Avenue), and an old corner store at the corner of Grey and Chalmers.

Little Black Building

560 Main

Main Street. What an awful building. Still, compared to Main Street’s WRHA, United Way and Youth For Christ buildings, this is a masterpiece.
