Illustrating Change on Bank Street



Description

Donalfonso_colinwhite

Drawing of the Don Alfonso Restaurant by Colin White

This walk will cover a short distance along Bank street between Arlington and Nepean. The walk will focus on a series of buildings sketched by walk host Colin White.  Most of these buildings have changed in the few years since the sketches were done, and a few notably have not changed.  We'll discuss the evolution of the individual buildings and the overall character of the street.  Participants will be given cards with illustrations of the buildings being discussed. 


Route

Starting at Argyle / Arlington, we'll go north along Bank St, with a slight detour along Somerset, and possibly cutting though an alley or two. We'll finish up at Bank & Nepean.
