A challenge - take a virtual stroll down Bethnal Green Rd heading toward Shoreditch in London and tell me if the streetscape reminds you of any Canadian city. I walked it from the Bethnal Green Tube station a few weeks ago and found some of it had a very familiar feel.

It shouldn't. Westmount even has Ontario-style streetlights with the yellow vertical casing.

Yakutsk in St. John's.



Winnipeg in St. John's (stucco, architecture).



And one complimentary one...

That Yakutsk one could be a doppelganger for some of the finer parts of Norilsk.

Hmm..that copy of Winnipeg may need a structural engineer

James Street in Wallaceburg reminds me of James Street in Hamilton.

Poor old Wallaceburg. It's probably the only non-resource town in the country that has been in constant depopulation for 40 solid years.

It's a type of streetscape that is quite commonly found in much of Canada, especially Toronto. Much of Bank St. in Centretown Ottawa is quite similar to this. There are also pockets of this "look" in Ontario cities like Kingston, Hamilton and also in Vancouver and Halifax even. Maybe even Montreal.

Leafy Boston suburbia in the middle of austere working class Gatineau.

Ottawa with a bit of a Liverpudlian feel. Could be Baltimore or Philadelphia too.
