Posted:

Looking southwest towards a Toronto Hydro Substation at the corner of Adelaide St E and George St in the Old Town, St Lawrence neighbourhood of Toronto.

The two-storey industrial building was constructed in the early 1930s and designed by architect Albert Edward Salisbury. Its facade is made of brick and stone and features Art-Deco details. Since 2021, the building has been listed on the city’s heritage register as part of the St Lawrence Neighbourhood Heritage Conservation District. Substations are primarily responsible for converting electricity into different voltages. Notice The Cathedral Church of St James steeple in the distance, on the right
