Description
The graffiti factory, aka the alleged former home of Geo W. Reed and Company, Babcock & Wilcox, Western Steel, Westell, etc. Some sources say it was built in 1895 and shut down in 1982. I've read that during WWII tank and aircraft parts were manufactured here, but perhaps those sources are confusing this spot with the CPR Angus Shops. Regardless, it's an ever changing canvas in the present time.

There's not a lot of definitive info on the place, which is odd considering it's size and no doubt history.

This place is coming down. By the time of my visit a part of the structure was entirely erased. The rest seems on the way in the very near future.

I went to this place in July 2014 and there was one building remaining. I went back at the beginning of August and the last building was demolished. I'm so glad I was able to see at least part of this place. I went back to take more video, but was heartbroken to see it was demolished. Here is a link to my video that starts at this location http://youtu.be/YFbAKe_RNk0
