Streetsville on a cold winter day

This is the corner of Queen and Main in Streetsville, Ontario. The town started out as a small settlement founded in 1820, by Timothy Street. Over time, the area was surrounded by the rapid development of the City of Mississauga. Still, Streetsville retains some of its charms, including many older shops in heritage buildings.

The Streetsville Village Clock looks rather large, but the dimensions are about right. It's a unique feature of the intersection. The coffee shop behind it is very popular, as is the Starbucks down the street.

The spire in the distance is of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church.

It was a frigid day yesterday when I did this. I stopped the car for a few minutes and sketched the outlines while sitting behind the steering wheel. I added the colour when I got home.
