[PHOTO] Five photos of Dovercourt and Hallam at twilight (#dovercourtvillage)

At the same time that I did my laundry, I also went out to take a look at the four corners or so of the intersection of Dovercourt and Hallam, the arguable centre of Dovercourt Village. Everything looks cool and familiar under the deep blue of twilight.

[PHOTO] Five photos of the flowers of 77 Food Market (#dovercourtvillage)

Whenever I go do my laundry at my chosen laundromat on Dovercourt Road just north of Hallam Street, I always head down to 77 Food Market on the corner. Sometimes, I pick up sundries there; sometimes, in warmer weather, I just go look at the flowers on display, ready for sale by the sidewalk, arranged neatly on banks of old milk crates.

The two corner stores at Dovercourt and Hallam, 77 Food Market on the northeast corner and Sun Shine Variety on the northwest, have in warmer months lovely displays of plants and vegetables. The pumpkins each is showing now are no different.
