It’s fun to explore the more hidden and off-the-beaten path places in the city in which you live. Although I’ve lived in Calgary for basically all my life, I had never really explored the back alleys of our downtown core until very recently. The front facades of all these buildings have been meticulously redone to add curb appeal, but the alleys behind these old buildings look the same as they did years and years ago. It’s a great way to catch a small glimpse of the past.
A lot of the old buildings in this alley still had stenciled lettering and logos from businesses that have long since gone under, and it was fun to see and capture them. Below is a view looking up above an old doorway that once invited passers by to a ‘Peoples Lunch’…hope you enjoy!
