The photo above comes from regular reader Darren B. , who submitted a follow up to the silo series from the other day. The silo is now all gone.


The next series of photos comes from reader Urbanrat, who has submitted a few photos of downtown that he has taken from his balcony over the years.

Looks like he’s got a pretty nice view!


Photo from the HMCS Hunter Archives

The photo above comes from the Commanding Officer of the HMCS HUNTER. A vintage photo of the Marketorium that is a little better and clearer than the one I posted the other day. It was quite a good looking building in its retail state.

Thanks to everyone for their submissions. I’m always on the lookout for vintage shots from around town too… If you’ve got any older shots of the city in your albums or in your parents albums that you would be willing to share with us, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line – andrew@internationalmetropolis.com

Thanks! Have a great weekend everyone.
