What with the height restrictions, tall things are noticeable in Montreal. And between home, the laundry and Coffee – Olimpico Style, there’s a railway line (wide gauge) and a warehouse. I walked past it a lot. Built in 1924 the water tower is a feature of the Mile End skyline. Now the building is fireproof storage and the water tower a home for mobile phone transmitters. It’s just kind of perched up there like an alien probe watching everything. The present is so prosaic you have to have an imagination. So… here they are, my views of the famous St Lawrence Warehousing Company.
