Street view

Sheldon and Sara have setup streetview on their Edmonton Real Estate search site. I heard about Google street view awhile and was looking forward to the day I could take a virtual stroll around Edmonton.

Anyway here are some notable places I visited today.

Garner Andrews, a morning DJ of the nearby Sonic radio station always brags to be broadcasting from Edmonton's used hubcap district. Here it is.

Next is Edmonton's very own giant bat. Some might think I am posting this ironically, but this is not the case. Edmonton is among the greats in the Giants of the Prairies.

While trying to get a good view of a more conventional landmark I couldn't help but notice this vintage turquoise mystery building.

The "vintage turquoise" mystery building looks like it is of a 50/60's vintage, judging by the architecture and color scheme that is the same as various 50/60's places we have here in Cowtown that are identical and of that period. IMHO it was either government or medical offices at one time.
