My first posting! This area in Sarnia used to be called the Golden Mile. You almost can't see it because of the overgrowth. The house looks like it dates from the late 1800's, it dosn't look too bad, the inside is a different story. It was broken into after sitting empty. The mystery building behind is an old cement block structure that I became quite fascinated with. It looks almost industrial, I can only speculate as to its original use, a farm/auto repair shop, a fabricating or machine shop, and there is an old neon sign with a tree growing over it, the tree is in the way but it looks like the large word on it spells out "Bimbo's" and on another part of the sign I can make out "Root beer"! Maybe this place bottled soda. There are several old cars here as well. The building is crumbling and the roof is gone if you go there be very carefull! Also I didn't notice any no trespassing signs, there is a keep out sign on the house, I didn't park out front or walk down the lane, I walked in from behind. This area back here is slated for development in a few years so I don't imagine this will be here too much longer.

VWbill That sign may have nothing to do with the place, but I think it might.
