June Photo Challenge - Day 23
At first glance, this black & white snapshot of the Exchange District (and Downtown) could almost be mistaken for an old photograph. That is, until you notice the Radisson Hotel and brand-new Manitoba Hydro building…and the station wagon parked in front of Artspace.
Being a fan of old buildings, I absolutely love working in the Exchange and I especially love working in the historic Crocus building. In the old days, it was one of the Ashdown Hardware buildings, but is now home to an eclectic array of organizations and businesses, including the offices of MCG.
We occupy the top two floors of the building and are lucky to lay claim to the much-coveted rooftop patio. This photo was taken from there this morning, right before I started my workday.
