Photos from the MNS walking-tour of PointDouglas on 2006-Aug13:
St-Michaels Ukrainian-Orthodox Church: at 110 Disraeli St Sutherland-Av+Annabella-St: looking south from Former red-light-district: on Annabella St 3 former brothels Intrepid House: the spy called Intrepid lived here at 175 Syndicate St in his youth Virgins bower (Clematis virginiana): at 167 Syndicate St Virgins bower (Clematis virginiana): Barber House: historic site at 99 Euclid Av partially restored Barber House: historic site at 99 Euclid Av partially restored and slightly burned Barber House: historic site at 99 Euclid Av fire damage and graffiti
- that's the 2nd church I've photographed in 2 days by that same name, after St-Michael the Archangel
- for a brief period in Winnipeg's history, city-council encouraged hookers to give up the street and do business in houses of ill-repute on Annabella St
- Sir William Stephenson, "A Man Called Intrepid", was an Icelandic Canadian from Winnipeg hired by Winston Churchill to direct the British spy-agency BSC during WWII
- Angus St had modern houses built by Habitat For Humanity, and our co-leader John Gunn had worked on several of these
- restoration of Barber House, MB Heritage Site Nbr 28, is in an extended lull;  it is a fine example of Post-On-Sill (poteau sur sole) construction, also known as "Red River Frame" although that's a misleading name for a variant of solid-log construction rather than "Frame" construction
- see map of the region from Google-Maps
