Ugh, talk about an unwieldy title. Oh well, at least it’s descriptive (if not somewhat inaccurate—some of the photos fall outside the Exchange District). From the top: Diamond Wax & Sanitary Supplies (William Avenue); Colours (William Avenue, across from RRC); Dacapo (Hargrave Street); Behind William Avenue; and Buy Rite (Hargrave and McDermot).

More from Notre Dame Avenue. This time, around half way between Downtown and Health Science Centre. From the top: V&C Cuevas Bakery; Winnipeg Lock & Key; one of many gaps (ie; missing teeth) along the street; Barber Hairstyling (Kate at Notre Dame); Frank Motors; and Gemini Fashions of Canada.

Notre Dame is an interesting street. It’s one of the main arteries in and out of Downtown, and has stretches that are very urban and walkable. Still, it’s never been a street that you’d particularly want to walk down. Too many breaks from the urban fabric—in the form of surface parking lots—kill the momentum. But still, every time I’m on Notre Dame I always see loads of potential.

City Council sees potential to, but through 1980s-colored glasses. Despite the recommendation of city planners, council has approved a decidedly anti-urban proposal by Independent Jewelers that will seriously alter the corner of Notre Dame and Isabel.

And don’t forget about the Manitoba Hydro/Calvary Temple/Luke’s Machinery clusterfuck that deadened another section of the street (Notre Dame and Adelaide). And this one was in the Exchange District no less!

So as always, the city planners get ignored by council and the city reverts to the lowest common denominator. Despite what Jeff Browaty or Russ Wyatt think, this is not progress.

A sunny day on Notre Dame Avenue (unlike a previous walk of the stretch I took one time). From the top: A couple from the corner of Notre Dame and Edmonton; a faceless building at the corner of Notre Dame and Ellen; the mysterious Modern Brush Company; and Hong Kong Snack House. I’ve never been to the last one, but I did notice lots of in and out traffic, so perhaps it’s worth checking out….

Ugh, my go-to Winnipeg neighborhood map has vanished from the Internet. It was fantastic—it listed specific neighborhood names and boundaries as well as the names of clusters of neighborhoods. I had been using it for years.

So if anyone knows of a reliable on-line source for neighborhood names and boundaries, please let me know. I can’t seem to find anything usable.

In the mean time, here are some shots from the North Central cluster (I think). The “Artists, Photographers, Lithographers, Engravers” building is on Ross Avenue; Crescent Fruit Co Ltd. is on Pacific Avenue; that’s the back of the Parts Source on Isablel; and those laptops for sale are also on Isabel, immediately north of the delicious, but unfortunately named Pho No. 1.

Logan and Arlington. I suppose the double-x in the name means double the fun….
