Celebrating Main Streets

What’s “Main Street” in your town or city? You know… the street where the parades are held, where the restaurants are clustered, where the boutiques are plentiful… and usually where the parking is impossible!

In my small city, it’s not called Main Street – it’s called Lakeshore Road, part of a major roadway that stretches 38km along Lake Ontario to Toronto. It has the restaurants, boutiques, spas, cafés, public square, food purveyors, and is a terrific place to visit. Like many Ontario downtowns, the architecture is a mix of new structures and restored early 20th century storefronts. I love these older buildings with their gables and brick arches, and in Oakville, I believe the best stretch of them is at the corner of Navy Street and Lakeshore.

Here’s my Mini version of that historic stretch, “Down On The Corner, Oakville”:

#90 – Down On The Corner, Oakville – sold

In Studio; 2.5″ x 3.5″ ink and watercolour

And did you know that Oakville was rated the 3rd best place to live in Canada! I think this lovely and vibrant downtown might have had something to do with it!
