Calgary’s former Fire Station No. 1, foreground left, and the North-West Travellers Building, foreground right, are dwarfed by their much bigger neighbours The Bow and Telus Sky, as seen a few weeks ago.
Just a few minutes from the King’s Cross/St. Pancras railway complex in London are the Coal Drop Yards, a former industrial area along the Regents Canal being remade for modern retail/leisure, near other new buildings housing offices and residential spaces. Here is one of the buildings, as it was about a year ago.
This stately building on Yonge Street in Toronto used to be home to North Toronto railway station. I had to look up this building in Google to verify its history … but its proximity to train tracks and the lovely clock tower pretty much gave away its heritage. It is currently a (very beautiful) liquor store.
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.
