The south end of the Puente de Luz which I have shown the last few days takes you to all the modern condo towers while at the north end you will find this wonderful little street running off Front Street. Draper St consists of a block of mostly Empire-style cottages that were built in the 1880s and while all around them became an industrial area in the 20th century, this little street survived intact as a residential area. It has been designated as a Heritage Conservation District which means that the outsides of all the homes must remain as they are - no modern renovations will take place here. I'll have to go back in summer when the street looks especially pretty and take some shots of individual homes.
