Visit of Dominion Textile

While walking around in St. Henri, found ourselves in front of the old Dominion Textile building (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_Textile), this old company was renovated (still keeping its old charm), and is now used by different small companies. To our surprise, the door was open, and we went exploring in this awesome building! So much to see and so beautiful!










More to come tomorrow!
P.S. the old staircases that were in my previous post are used not only as emergency exits, but also as regular stairs. Aren't they cool! :)

Ohhh, B and I were in a building that looked so much like yours just this past Saturday night to see some artist's studios during an Art Walk. As we were walking around I kept saying how much I would love to shoot in it! All that fabulous texture and age. Great captures!

I adore these. My favorite is totally the first shot...with the angle, and the light coming in from the windows. I am so jealous. I want to go to some of your neat places. I had a dream last night about visiting Quebec City.

What a cool building, my favorite shot is the 2nd to last one of Ben(?) silhouetted in the hall. :)

Suzy said...
