Canada Malting Silos, 1928

Canada Malting Silos is one of few silos left in Toronto. The silos were built in 1928 to store malt for the Canada Malting Company. The concrete malting towers were an innovation in that time. The main silos, 15 in all, are 120 feet (37 meters) high and additional storage bins built in 1944 are 150 feet (46 meters) high.

Now a heritage site, it sits abandoned since 1980's. Lately used a a storage site for building material for tunnel for Island Airport.


This photo taken in June, 2011, was reduced to just 2 tones. I just found the colours distracting.


CN tower still visible in the background!
