Benny Farm

Some old Benny farm buildings still stand after 4 years of being slated for demolition.

Funny how they used the building’s doors to cover the window openings.

Tallest mark 49 1/4 another one reads august 4 1999, bottom reads 6 yrs 16 1/4

This find gave me the creeps, It made me reflect about the people living there previously and how something as simple as their grandkid/kid’s growth chart is the only trace of them living there. Everything else in the house was gutted and the walls were bare like all the other appartements.

The bottom floors were really disgusting, Floorboards were warped, black mold decorated the walls and most of the ceilings found their way onto the floor.

SuperAbandonment

With big projects to turn the old glen yards into the new superhospital, many new construction has sprung up around NDG. A building on Girouard and St.Jacques has already been torn down and 3 others on Sherbrooke are slated for demolition. This afternoon me and Snurferboy decided to check one of them out. Funny fact, the pawn shop that was once below this apartment was the place where I bought my first camera in the late 90’s. The city of Montreal evaluated this building pre-slating for demolition.
