Built in 1876, the Saint John City Market is the oldest continuing farmer's market in Canada. The Market forms the historic centerpiece of a revitalized city centre as it lies adjacent to the main street of the urban core area and abuts the City’s most prominent public square, “King’s Square”. The unique architectural design of the building reveals an exterior façade reflective of the Victorian era in which it was built, while the interior space of the Market resembles the hull of a ship. The design was an intentional nod to the City’s economic and cultural heritage, as the City was an active ship building port city in the 19th Century...More

The Distillery District, the site of the former Gooderham & Worts Distillery, was originally established in 1837 in what is now downtown, on the east side of Toronto. It is "the largest and best preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture in North America." It survived Prohibition, two World Wars and other challenging social/political times. In 1990, after 153 years of continuous production, the Gooderham & Worts Distillery finally closes its doors. It has played host to -- and still plays host to -- many TV, film and (advertising) commercial productions, including the four-time Oscar-winning musical film CHICAGO. In May 2003, The Distillery Historic District re-opens as a place to shop at unique, one-of-a-kind boutiques, explore a key part of Toronto's history, relax at a cafe, dine and enjoy various special events. It is an instant hit with locals and tourists alike, and quickly becomes one of Canada’s top tourist attractions. http://www.thedistillerydistrict.com/history.phpMore
The High Level Bridge serves as a great public place, transportation corridor, stunning vista, and link to the past. The riveted-steel bridge was constructed 100 years ago as a link from Edmonton to the town of Strathcona, and remains the city's only level crossing, handily spanning the mighty divide of the North Saskatchewan River from nearly 300 feet above. This imposing span was designed from the onset to accommodate pedestrians, streetcars, rail, and motor traffic, and is in my mind Edmonton’s greatest place.
It is a prime example of function over form, with a lack of adornment that is unusual for prominent structures of this era across Canada. In this starkness, however, lies the charm of the High Level Bridge. The name itself speaks volumes to the way in which residents relate to the structure; it has almost no name, but is incredibly distinctive in the urban environment. In a way it is a reflection of Edmonton's approach to city building over the years, a massive undertaking with little to no pomp...More

A gem in the heart of Truro, Victoria Park is a natural woodland park of roughly 400 acres in the centre of town. Lepper Brook, with its two sets of waterfalls, flows through a steep tree covered rocky gorge. Several walking trails follow along the brook allowing a close view of this unique setting. The first set of falls is named after the distinguished Joseph Howe who admired them during a visit in 1830. The next are the Waddell Falls, named after Susan Waddell Stevens, who donated the first land in 1888 containing the falls and gorge, thus beginning this park for the enjoyment of Truro citizens...More
