These are basically just random shots I took while getting shots of developments for the developments thread...therefore not so random.
Not sure about the future of this building...it was open back in December
The only roadway left from the Carleton Street bridge
Northside graffitti "art"
The first phase of this (on the left) was starting at $249,000 back in 2003. Not sure what they were asking for units in the rest of it. At roughly the same time, the house that was the Lieutenant Governor's Residence (before it was moved back to Old Government House) was accepting bids with a floor price of $250,000. It will show up in another picture later on.
Our mess of an intersection...
We've dried out somewhat
The aforementioned Lieutenant Governor's (former) residence
Regent Street (hard to believe this was at 6:00pm...though it was Saturday of a long weekend)
During (May 1, 8.3m) and after (May 17, 4.5m) the flood
after (notice the bench in common)
I was standing on where the edge of the floodwater had reached for this shot
The Lieutenant Governor's residence has moved back into a large stone mansion (Old Government House). I think the residence on Waterloo Row was supposed to be temporary anyway, perhaps for renovation purposes (similar to what's going on in Halifax right now, although there they moved her into a condo...she's from my home neighbourhood too ).
It wasn't temporary...that was the Lt Gov's residence for decades. Old Government House was home to the RCMP HQ before they built the complex on Regent in the 80s...they tried to figure out what to do with OGH for about 10 years before they decided to move the Lt Gov back in.
That said...excellent pics! Nice to see some northside stuff for a change!
