In 1995, when Steamworks first took hold of our historic Gastown brewpub location, they discovered that the building had a rare steam heat system. A remnant from forward thinkers of a century past. Steamworks' brewmaster had only read of steam powered brewing, but had never seen a functional steam brewery. These are very rare indeed.

Angus McIntyre is a retired bus driver of 41 years. A lifelong interest in transportation, lighting and urban history led him to documenting the city scene through photography. As a natural night owl, the late night shift was an obvious choice and his camera frequently went along for the ride. In the deserted streets of old East End, he captured the details of light on streetcar tracks and the faded glory of corner grocery stores. McIntyre's night time photographs of emptiness of the city and its streets show us a recent but seemingly distant past.

Okay, so maybe you are not going back to school. However, September still feels like such a good time to reset your goals and habits. In with the new, out with the old, as they say! We scouted out some great "school supplies" around the neighbourhood that will freshen up your desktop, work life, and day-to-day (in a back to school kind of way). Check it out, and have a great September!

Via Old Faithful - As summer draws to a close we find ourselves heading back to work or school and needing that extra boost just to get us there. As much as we love a piping hot cup of joe it's hard to stomach it when the thermostat is still about to pop. Here's the perfect alternative: pour-over iced coffee. It's a cinch to do and the results are flavourful and packed with pick-me-ups.
