Adore

I always like this part of Queen St West with its old buildings housing a variety of small boutiques & shops but times are changing and the rents are going through the roof resulting in the exodus of many of the old-timers. This is one of the older areas of the city as you can tell from the wonderful details on the facades. This 'Adore' sign has been there for a long time - not sure why!

Yes, that is a terrific facade. It's neat how they built all these buildings with a level line above the 2nd storey.

I love places like this, they are so full of personality! ;-)

Looks like a wonderful street to meander down and around. Love those old buildings. "Adore," I don't get. Must have some meaning. Maybe someone started out with A Do Re ... and got sidetracked so never put up the Mi. ;-)

I really like this area, too. The rooflines of each building are interesting!

It is a nice line-up of old brick buildings. It would fit in down here.

It doesn't look too dissimilar to Mostyn Street here in Llandudno, which was probably built in the mid 1800's.

A wonderful facade Pat, love the arched windows and I'm happy the 'adore' stayed around so long..at least it's a positive right!

A lovely section of buildings.

One of my favorite parts of town in your fair city. Great sign, I missed it last time I was there, gives me a reason to return.

I think it's sad the rents are going up and up. Hmmmm.
