Was just north of St. Clair Avenue (Toronto) this afternoon. Wanted to grab some images - an Art Deco municipal building not in use. It was a transfer station with weigh scales inside.
Handsome, with mature maple trees out front but hard to imagine this puppy being creatively reused.
The area used to have massive stockyards and slaughterhouses near. A few smaller rendering plants remain and today they were managing to stink out the area with a smell that I won't try and describe except to say it made me sneeze a lot. Immediately south of here the suburbs are invading the city but this corner won't be changing much soon. A film crew were in here about a month ago. Hope they had their shots - not the healthiest looking place to be.
Intriguing yeah?( Collapse )
