I've got the power!

Oakville Hydro doesn't hang onto it's buildings for a long time. I've known two that they've just knocked down in recent history. First is their old building on Trafalgar Rd (it's now a Chrysler Dealer) and the Ops center near the Oakville GO station.

This place was cool, especially when it still had power. We could wander around the halls, examine the old equipment. Then one day, it all was sealed up. Until one day it was opened again, but no power this time around. I was able to make it back three more times, once on a whim as I had an idea to shoot the main control room.

I even once went here in a snow storm.

I manually discharged a flash against the situation board while crawling behind the control panel.

Then the demolition started....
