Place, Language and Memory in Little Portugal: The Facades Storytelling

Vivian Gomes

Little Portugal's essence is present within its place-based memories interlaced within the facades that tell stories. The buildings and their languages serve as tapestries, reflecting the neighbourhood's evolving identities. Through architecture, porch life, and the recounted memories carried on, Little Portugal's rich cultural heritage comes to life, inviting us to gather and celebrate it in this walk. Enduring signs of old shops and restaurants along Argyle Street and Dovercourt Road call for reflections on continuity and change, past and new narratives woven in this dynamic living neighbourhood.
