Winnipeg heritage buildings

|

The City of Winnipeg's heritage building list includes articles on the history of each building, which are quite interesting. I just learned the Hammond building, where I used to work, was famous for its free hats, and was gutted in a 1923 fire. Unfortunately, my apartment building isn't quite historical enough to make the cut.

I spent yesterday afternoon wandering around St. Boniface taking photos, and I can't figure out why I don't spend more time there. It's just across the river, but I usually just race through it on my bike or in a car.

It's very neat architecturally and historically. I think it just needs a few more new stores and restaurants to get things happening. I started with a coffee at Le Garage (voted best coffee in the city on CBC radio), then wandered by the old city hall, the fire hall, the college universitaire St.-B., Cathedrale St-B., and the Hospital. My photos, as always are on Flickr.
