Wanderings In Westboro

Picking up where I left off yesterday, this was in Westboro. It claims to be the friendliest pub in the neighbourhood. As I don't drink at all, I'll just have to take their word for it.


Further west, this pub mural had a musical theme.


This doggie mural caught my eye.


I've shown you this building in a post in October. It looks like a church (and in fact has a church as a neighbour), but it's not. This was a town hall for Nepean township before the area was annexed to Ottawa in 1950 (this was well before the city of Nepean got amalgamated into Ottawa as a whole). Today it serves as a senior's centre. It was decorated for Hallowe'en at the time.


My last mural features firefighters as its theme. I've added today and yesterday's posts into Sami's Monday Mural post for the week.
