Continuing with my Tavern Tour Series: Clicks
Bar and Grill, located at 337
Richmond Street in the basement boasts the
cheapest beer in the city. The pub is not very interesting but the building (WaterlooBuilding) has a long,
interesting history. Proximity to the
railroad tracks back in the 1880’s attracted the wholesale houses. These
buildings were well designed, well built and still remain today. The WaterlooBuilding was constructed in 1881, on the
site of a famous hotel owned by a veteran of the Battle of Waterloo. The WaterlooBuilding had 2 long term tenants:Hobbs Hardware (339 and 341) and Robinson Little
Dry Goods (343 and 345).

The Victoria Day Long Weekend produced some wonderful weather for three days! Golfed: 9 holes Friday night, 18 holes Saturday afternoon and 18 holes again on Monday... and still had time to do allot of other work. What a great weekend!
On holiday Monday, Troy and I played Heron Point, near Ancaster, ON. "In the roster of great courses designed by Canadian architect Thomas McBroom, Heron Point Golf Links, although one of his earliest, still ranks among his best." as described on Clublink website.
Golfing and sketching challenges me to sketch very quickly and remember details. The initial sketch is just a few lines, by then every one has hit their drive and we move on. The inking and shading can happen a hole or 2 later, depending on the pace of play that day. This is first of the four sketches I did while golfing on Monday at Heron Point.
"The Art of Old South" from November 26 - December 24, 2013 will feature the art of Susan Garrington, Len Hughes, Amelia Husnik and myself at The Art Exchange in Wortley Village. The nasty weather of this past Sunday -- there was rain, snow, sleet and sunshine. The "snow" on May 13th me post this small painting of A Village Tail at 160 Wortley Rd in Old South.
