School's Out Foooooreeever!

The old St. Anthoney's Catholic Elementry was both the fastest and slowest demoltion job ever. This school located outside the main downtown core of the city sat sat empty as it had been replaced by a brand new building that sat in what used to be the playground for this building.

I was first alerted to this abandonement through an article in the Toronto Star's "Fixer" section that complained about the alley way filling up with trash and construction material. As it turned out, to build the new building they ripped out half of the old school's gym, then applied plywood to seal the hole.

So even with the new school in full use, the old one just sat there. I managed to get inside three times (Dec 06, Jan 07, and Mar 07)

Shortly after that it was gone, litterally overnight the building was torn down, a parking lot installed and the area landscaped.

Slowest yet fasted demo job ever.

The entire contents of the library had been dumped into the gym. Oh and there was still power! We had a slide show going on.
