Summerside, PEI: City Population (2001)-14,654; Census Agglomeration: 16,200

On my way home a couple of weeks ago, I decided to take my girlfriend on an alternate route through PEI, since she had never been there and I remembered very little from when I was there way back when I was too young to appreciate cityscapes of any kind, let alone small towns. We all know how much I like small towns now. ;)

This was a nice little city, about what I expected. Nothing over 4 or 5 storeys that I saw.



I wasn't thinking when I took that shot, I didn't get the actual map where we were in the frame. The main drag of downtown is Water St, and there's a waterfront road called Harbour Dr or something like that.

These first few are from the Harbour Dr side...main entrances are on Water St (ie-these are the "back" of the buildings, but the waterfront side)


Dominion Square...a former department store.






Don't know the significance of this mural, but I liked it.


Can't remember which hotel this is


This mural is kinda freaky


Now to Water St










The front of Dominion Square


A short detour off of Water St to head up to city hall
Never heard of a Fox Museum before


Summerside City Hall


Back to Water St
The new form of Downtown Revitalization...instead of corrugated steel, wooden lengths that look like vinyl siding.






The building revitalization forgot


Corrugated steel. :bash: With the shadow of the old sign.


There were a lot of chinese restaurants on PEI






One of the current tenants of Dominion Square


Coming to the end of the main drag


Didn't turn "snap to image" off on adobe... :runaway:


Former train station


Apartments on Harbour Dr


The end of Water St






Looking West down Water St (how you'd enter from the highway from Confederation Bridge)


The department store that is now Dominion Square


Harbour Dr Apartments from the waterfront


A bit of the waterfront




That's all from Summerside...next is Charlottetown...then Fredericton for a treat!

Nice shots.
I have lots of family in PEI, therefore I am at Summerside nearly every year. Not a bad place, but I definatley prefer Charlottetown (a really nice city for its size).

Thanks for the comments. I liked Summerside, but it's a little to small for me.
