A to Z Challenge: P is for Pilot (#AtoZChallenge)

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

Today, P is for Pilot Street!

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

What I could find out about Pilot Street:

Back to our one-block streets, Pilot Street runs from Niagara down to Dallas Road.

Apparently there are no registered Heritage houses on Pilot, but it is known for its “wartime” housing.  Here is an example:

From http://www.victoriaheritagefoundation.ca/Neighbourhoods/jamesbayhistory.html:

“The opening of Panama Canal in August 1914 encouraged more industrial development in the vicinity of Ogden Point. A breakwater was constructed during WWI and the Ogden Point Docks were opened to deep-sea shipping. In the late 1920s a grain elevator was built and later a fish processing plant, both served by a railway barge slip. During World War II the former Outer Wharf became a major ship building facility for the Victoria Machinery Depot. The old Armadale Estate was subdivided, Pilot and Dock Streets were opened up and “Wartime houses,” affordable houses for the shipyard workers, were constructed. ”

Here are some pictures I took of Pilot Street.

Here is the Dallas end.

A different approach – here are some tiny houses along Pilot Street:

And, at the Niagara end, are some community gardens!

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

  1. I love the tiny houses, especially the door in the tree.

  2. The tiny houses are so cute! 🙂

  3. Love the fairy abodes 🙂

  4. So insanely charming! I can only imagine how enchanted by it all kids must be. I see those fairy items at the craft store and just can’t imagine what to do with them…

  5. What a cute place and it’s cool you could find some history on the area. My tiny town opened a history museum a couple of years ago. I keep meaning to stop by it. Girl Who Reads

    • It’s amazing how we don’t always take the time to be a tourist in our own town! In the city I am from, we only went to museums, etc., when guests came to visit.

  6. I do so love the little leprechaun lodges! They are so adorable!
