Lovely Lunenburg – Part III

We looked at colourful doors in Lovely Lunenburg – Part I and colourfu houses in Lovely Lunenburg – Part II. This time, it’s colourful business buildings. Like this pottery shop…

The green building is a pizza place. I’m not sure if the orange building is part of the pizza place or a separate residence. Either way, the two of them together make a really bold statement!

Lunenburg Academy is one of the more elaborate buildings you’ll see here. It was built in 1894/95 and it’s now the only intact 19th century Academy building surviving in Nova Scotia.

I think this is my favourite building in Lunenburg – the green is so vibrant!

We drie by the Lunenburg Foundry & Engineering Limited building every time we go into Lunenburg. I never realized that it’s actually a combination workshop/store until I walked by it and stopped to look in the windows. They primarily make bronze collectables and solar castings here. I bought a really cool bronze piece that I’ll be showing you soon.

A health/wellness/beauty business operates out of this pretty turquoise building.
