Silo n° 5

Silo N° 5 
Tommy Kane has done it. So has Shari Blaukopf. Now it was my turn. Silo n° 5 is a fixture in Old Montreal. I see it everyday on my walk to work. Finally, I sat down to sketch it this afternoon.

This grain elevator is now in disrepair. But in time's past, it was considered one of the most technologically advanced elevators of the 20th century. Ships could unload their grain without having to come ashore.

In more recent days past, it did sport some graffiti, but a spray wash has erased that.
