    Where in Calgary #27

    So as to not make a whole bunch of new threads and knowing there's a lot of commissioned street art out there in Calgary, I've renamed this thread and will keep this one going.

    There's a lot of commissioned street art around that people regularly drive or cycle or walk by and maybe just give it a glance at best - let's maybe share it in this thread on the same sort of hide and seek theme. Now I'm not talking outlaw graffiti and such - just legal commissioned stuff that could be on either public or private property and should be view-able from Google StreetView as this is a car forum.

    I really like street art. Not sure why. I just like to look at it.

    So to continue on in the theme of this thread, here's someone's garage door - very much view-able from Google StreetView.

    Clues, older flat-topped garage with cinder block wall construction and it's in the north part of the city (just for jwslam )...

    With a bit of a view of downtown, one would expect better being so close in.

    I lived in that area for a bit and I don't recognize that door at all.

    Yea, painted doors is a bridgeland thing. Found the Calgary Flames one, down the block from a place I lived, and I KNOW I've seen this one but can't find it. That's going to bug me until we see the answer lol

    nice

    That one would have bugged me for a while.

    Anyone remember the Coffee Roost (where Deluxe Diner is now)? I spend most of my teens there.

    Wow, I'd hate to have that parking spot beside the lane across the street. Even with a pick-up, coming down that lane when it's snow/ice-covered would suck!

    Funny, I had an offer in on a condo in that building just on the left of that garage. We ended up backing out due to big problems with the condo documents, and a structural problem with the deck. Was a pretty cool space though, and fun location for the yupie dinks we were.

    Steepest drive-able alley in Calgary just to the west of that garage with part of the slope exceeding a 30% grade.
