A to Z Challenge: D is for Dock Street (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, D is for Dock Street!

Here is a Google map showing where Dock Street is located in James Bay.

Like other streets I’ve discussed so far, Dock Street is also one block, from Niagara Street to Dallas Road.

What I could find out about Dock Street:

Not a lot.  There are no heritage houses on Dock Street.  I suspect the name Dock comes from being so close to the docks, down on Dallas, but it’s only a guess.  Although, I bet you would believe it!

At one end of Dock are some community gardens…

…and the White Eagle Polish Hall.

Complete with palm trees…why, oh why are there palm trees??

And at the other end are some apartment buildings…

And the ocean and Ogden Point.

Here are some more pictures I took of Dock Street just this week.

Facing Niagara…

…and facing Dallas Road.

And at the end of Dock, on Dallas, are two wonderful Heritage houses that were moved from near the Legislature buildings down to Dallas last year.  I love a city that preserves its heritage!!

What else do you want to know about Dock Street?  Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!

  4. I love that in the distance of some of those pics, you can see the ocean. And the palm trees! I had no idea they could live so far north!
