This past Sunday, my friend Jon and I went to the abandoned Kodak plant to take pictures. We ran into a group of guys who asked us if we were “urban explorers”. I guess we are now! It was a lot of fun and I definitely want to do more things like this in the future. I felt like I was playing Fallout 3 in real life.
Thanks to advances in digital photography, the Kodak manufacturing plant at Eglinton West and Black Creek Drive in Toronto closed its doors in 2005. The only building that currently remains is Building #9, or what used to be the employees’ building. As far as I know, the land has been purchased but no decision has been made yet about what to do with the lot.

These signs were everywhere – with a typo: “Absolutily No Smoking”.
The building used to be connected to other buildings. Now all that’s left is doors to nowhere.
I was surprised these curtains were still here after all this time.
