Urban Exploration


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.
