The home of a garment factory on Spadina Avenue, now empty.

The textile mills were the earliest industry here, establishing the identity of the area that it's still known by today. This factory was the last holdout in a neighbourhood now dominated by condos, offices and - its legacy - fur and fabrics retailers.

The Fashion District.

This shot is great. Dark, depressing. Nice job.

If you're interested, I'd like you to feel free to submit photos to our weekly photo:post at www.boondawgle.com

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
