Downtown II

This intersection is at the bottom of Johnson Street. Coming in from the left is Store Street. On the right when it leaves the intersection it has become Wharf Street. Behind me as I took the photo is the Johnson Street Bridge. The building on the left is Market Square. On the far right is the Salvation Army building that houses their thrift store and provides other social services to people in need. Further up Johnson is the colorful Paper Box Building and arcade. Yesterday's photo was taken on Yates Street, one block over from Johnson Street, on the right.

I like the human scale of the buildings - nothing too towering in this area. A bit like Paris (or so I hear).

Uselaine,

Nearly all the buildings in this picture were built in the 1890s, the first of three major building booms in Victoria (the others were the 1970s and the late 1990s/200s). The vast majority of the buildings in downtown were built in those eras.

Oh wow. The color and all that's going on makes me want to sit and just take it all in. This is a grand perspective as well. Lovely street!!!
