As a point of reference, our new-old home is in Walkerville, just outside the boundaries of Olde Walkerville (as defined by the Olde Walkerville Residents Association). I haven’t explored enough to see the differences in architecture between the “olde” and “non-olde” parts of Walkerville, although I would imagine, somehow, that they would be rather subtle. Something to discover in future!

I’m still struck by how wonderful it is to be surrounded by so much accessible character and beautiful architecture, right in my own back yard.
