A neat design feature outside a building in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This is the last photo I took of the little yellow house once belonging to Enoch Sales.
The building in Calgary’s Victoria Park neighbourhood, long in a state of disrepair, was the last remaining Queen Anne Revival-style home in the city. It had been slated to be part of an area revitalization project called the Rivers District.
The building burned in a two-alarm fire on Feb. 2, 2019, and was subsequently demolished.
Riding in one of San Francisco’s newest light-rail vehicles while on vacation there, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of familiarity.
San Francisco’s Muni LRVs are made by Siemens and, despite differences in door and seating configuration, are in fact the same high-floor model as the newest light-rail cars purchased by Calgary Transit. The similarities are definitely there, from the whine of the motors to the station announcement chime … and even the malfunctioning passenger information system. (Calgary Transit’s CTrain displays work but sometimes show the wrong time or station information; Muni’s displays were simply off when I rode their light-rail trains.)
The photo above shows a Muni light-rail Metro train operating on the N line, departing from Ocean Beach.
The Royal Pavilion in Brighton is an architectural taste of south Asia on the coast of the English Channel. The building was originally constructed as the summer home of George, then Prince of Wales, who would later become King George IV.
