Hochelaga-Maisonneuve has been deeply marked by the train, in its development. Even today, it is surrounded by three tracks : the Canadian Pacific to the west, the now abandoned Canadian National to the east and the one of the port of Montreal to the south.
For the longest part of the 20th century, it was also bordered to the north by the «shop Angus», a vast industrial complex occupying 40 acres of land as well as the «Montreal Locomotive Works», a provider of the CPR, to the east, both now vanished.

The old Canada Malting plant

The old Canada Malting plant | Urban Exploration | Scoop.it
Built in the early twentieth century, the former Canada Malting plant has a dozen gigantic silos, 37 meters high. The oldest has been built in 1905. Hundreds of employees were working there after the Second World War, until the closure of the factory at the turn of the 80s. The building, despite its poor condition is unique. With its ceramic silos, it is one of the last two copies in North America.
Heritage listed in Montreal, this former malthouse is now a huge rusty ruin who receives regular visits from young people in search of thrills.
