Montréal (Quebec), Canada

Located on the banks of the Canal Lachine, the old  Cie de recyclage de papier de Montréal inc. factory have been destroyed in part since 2009. Today, there are only the old building located behind the front store who is still there.

When entering the building, we find mountains of recycling bins and tons of circulars unassembled. While the ground floor is not really interesting, it is the total opposite for the first and second floor.

Although the structure is made with concrete and brick, the wood floors on the first floor are in a sorry state. In many places, they are stoned or ready to give way under the weight of a too reckless visitor. Nevertheless, you will discover a funny scene. Behind the tons of recycling bins, we find a surfboard... and a Mortal Kombat Arcade without the screen. It is as if the place had been squatted by a bohemian artist with very little means.

The top floor, meanwhile, is a real cave of Ali Baba. Beyond the roof pieces that have passed away, we discovered a real warehouse where are stored: old broken furniture, old yellowed toilet, machinery that no longer works for thousands of years and lots of stuff without any value... but photogenic.
