Demolition began last week on the Royal Canadian Military Institute on University Ave in Toronto. This heritage Edwardian building will be replaced with a 42 storey condo. The RCMI  focused on “the Promotion and Fostering of Military Art, Science and Literature” in Canada.

  1. Even when it’s intentional and deliberate, that much destruction makes for a chilling photo. Well done – I love the way the equipment looms in front of the buildings in the background.

  2. Great perspective with the bulldozer arm

  3. Super photo, Lesley, but I hate when that happens. Vancouver allowed so many heritage buildings to be torn down to make way for skyscrapers, I’m almost glad I left BC.
    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I love visitors, especially those who leave tracks. And you’re right, Spaniards are such night people, a night market is perfect, shop late, eat late.

  4. What a demolition. It’s amazing to see those huge machines.

  5. right now, in Christchurch, after the earth quake, they need your demolition machine and team there.

  6. Wow! This is such a powerful image. Fantastic shot!
