An unplanned urban exploration at the old Canadian Malting Co. Limited built in 1904 and abandoned in 1989. The plant is still located along the Lachine Canal in Saint-Henri in Le Sud-Ouest borough.
Malt is a germinated cereal grain that has been dried during a process called malting and then used to make beer, whisky, malt vinegar and malted milk among other food and beverage products.
I discovered this old and rusty site after a visit to my friend Peter, owner of a market bazaar now closed. After I left him I decided to explore Saint-Henri and this is when I discovered the Canadian Malting Co. Limited. The company still exists but under a different name, Canada Malting Co. and at a different address.
