Hanna Street Hydro Substation

A thanks goes out to regular reader Aaron for the suggestion to cover this old Hydro Substation on Hanna St. in his old neighbourhood.

I thought I had some information on this one somewhere, but I couldn’t find it anywhere…

It was decommissioned around the time the one on Walker Road just north of Richmond was. Maybe around 2002 – 2003… I seem to recall that this one was a few years younger, and was maybe built around 1918 or so… I know that this property along with the one on Walker were put up for sale by EnWin as surplus properties, but I’m not sure if this one ever sold.

It really is a great looking building, and it’s a shame that it’s in the sorry condition that it’s in today.
