The Last of Colborne

The Demolition Of Colborne Street

Once dubbed Ontario's most rundown city, Brantford was so shabby that its main street was used as the primary filming location in the horror movie, "Silent Hill".

In 2010, over the course of several months, three entire blocks on the south side of Colborne Street were demolished as part of a project designed to revitalize the city.

These pictures are some detail shots I took of the buildings on Colborne shortly before they were torn down.
