It's a type of streetscape that is quite commonly found in much of Canada, especially Toronto. Much of Bank St. in Centretown Ottawa is quite similar to this. There are also pockets of this "look" in Ontario cities like Kingston, Hamilton and also in Vancouver and Halifax even. Maybe even Montreal.!8i8192

Still a really nice group of people to spend Christmas dinner with, though.
