We didn’t go inside the factory or silos but we did get inside the fence and had a chance to explore around them. To me the best part was going underneath the huge lines that use to connect the building to trains for transporting the grains (at least what’s what I logically assume they use to be for) so I wanted to share those photos first. I have plenty more double exposures from the front of the building as well but thought I’d share them in another post likely in mid-May as this post would have been huge so look out for that if you enjoy abandoned buildings. I’m so excited about being able to leave my house again. Recovering my concussion is going well and just maybe this summer I can get inside the Silo #5. Can you imagine the view from there?

Last weekend me and Victor went to explore the Canada Malting Silos building that is located on the Lachine Canal. We were checking it out to see if we could gain entrance to the abandoned silos. Sadly we weren’t able to find a way of getting in. I was able to grab photos of the exterior, and thought I’d share. We had a peek inside the building through the cracks of some of the welded up holes and it has now made me even more determined than before to get inside. There has also been news this year that the building may get torn down by its current owner and converted into condos so time is of the essence. I’ve always had a love for abandoned buildings, I just love that creepy sense of time gone past and the old machinery just left behind. Hope to find more places to explore. There are definitely a lot of abandoned buildings in Montreal, getting access is always the trick. If you want to see photos taken from inside check out this blog, it’s so beautiful!
