Wellington Street Destructor

I just found out the Wellington Street Destructor has been cleaned out! It was bound to happen after the neighbouring slaughter house closed. The city is now looking to secure and mothball the site.

Here are some of my photos from several visits over the years when the building was full of “the caretaker’s” collection of stuff.

And this is how I imagined the Wellington Destructor with a glass ceiling including the view of the city from the roof.glass-ceiling-stans-and-hogtown
And if you want to see it all cleaned up, Toronto City Councillor Mike Layton photographed the empty site last week.
