It's Symes Time!

The Symes Solid Waste Transfer Facility in the Junction area of Toronto is a beautiful example of Art Deco styling of a public works building. Buildings of style gives one a sense of pride in one's local government. Too bad they don't it anymore.

Built in 1933 as a garbage incenerator, Symes served in that purpose for just under 40 years, in 1972, the stacks were taken down, and Symes was used for solid Waste Transfer until it's closure in 1996.

There are two main structures on the property. The first being the former incinerator/transfer point station, the second is the truck garage, both built in '33, and styled in the same fashion.
