To bring down all the pictures on this blog to just fifty “best of” was a bit of a challenge. I was of course limiting myself to pics I had taken, not those I have gratefully borrowed — usually with acknowledgement by name or link. I was looking for a bit of variety, but also looking at what I thought actually was interesting photographically.
You will find them displayed on the new modest photo blog, but here they are in miniature. Clicking on each set takes you to the corresponding live archive. There you may view individual pictures full size, if you want.
What do you think? Are any of your favourites missing?

Looking back up Campbell Street from the Chinatown side of Elizabeth with Wentworth Avenue (Market Lane in Jacob’s day) coming in on the left.
Wentworth Avenue, whatever it may have looked like in its Market Lane days, still bends in the direction of Haymarket, and still wears a slightly disreputable air.
