Down a long, narrow, brick-encased passageway, I leave Victoria’s chinatown behind and explore Dragon Alley.
It’s a townhouse complex built inside the shell of a big-old, historic building. It’s a funky maze of teeny, ground-floor businesses with living spaces above. This builds on the trendy ‘tiny house’ theme, creating a hip, ‘tiny town’.
And what does any tiny town need?
Woo hoo! Another public book exchange.
Take a book.
Leave a book.
Imagine the adventures we can find inside a book we find inside the tiny library of tiny town…
I like the friendliness of this community. I also like the whimsy. Check out the spin on the classic “No Trespassing” sign on the stairs.
Here. there Be Dragons.
Yup, that’s the title of a book…
Or are there really dragons preening up on those super- envy -worthy roof-top balconies ???
