Old C.A.A.

I noticed the other day that the death fences had sprung up around the old C.A.A. building on Ouellette Ave @ Gilles. It was in the basement of this building that I was taught to drive a car by the man who ironically is now my city councilor.

The building sports the Petretta Construction signs, the same ones that the old Champion Sparkplug factory had out before the building crushers moved in.

A quick check around the side shows two big dumpsters and some kind of abatement activity going on inside. Won’t be long I suppose until there is another hole in our urban landscape.
