Abandoned Kodak Plant in Toronto Weston

Looking for more evidence of de-industrialization, i found Building 9 as the only remaining evidence of the once huge Kodak manufacturing facility that once employed over 2000 people. Partly boarded up, the building is now a haven for graffiti artistes, whose work can be seen through the windows. Local kids who would once have found real jobs there. Now closed since 2005, this is the end product of de-industrialization.

Irony is taking a digital photo of a former film manufacturing plant.

Taken with a 70-200 mm lens on a bright morning.
