C'est une belle photo ,l'angle de prise est super et avec le charme des vieux batiments qui racontent leur vie sur leurs murs et leurs fenêtres,avec un p'tit coin de ciel bleu en haut ...j'aime énormément !

23 Jun 2008 7:56am

@Marie-Hélène Ammor: Oui, ici il y a beaucoup de choses à découvrir... C'est une ancienne usine de tabac qui est maintenant divisée en ateliers pour des artistes et artisans... Merci au nom de Mathieu pour le commentaire!

@Illuci: Yeah, not too long ago about 50% of the adult population smoked and now it's barely 20%.... Thanks on behalf of Mathieu!

dj.tigersprout from San Bruno, United States

aside from the intriguing historic and much faded 'advert', i am enjoying the wonderful composition here. very interesting layout of the 5 windows - 2 of them being blocked in! :)

23 Jun 2008 1:52pm

@dj.tigersprout: On another building in the same complex they even "renovated" an old historic snuff tobacco advertising to help remember what the buildings were used for. Thanks on behalf of Mathieu for your visit and compliment!

Michael Rawluk from Prince George, Canada

The faded colours are gorgeous. If only cigarettes would fade away like that.

23 Jun 2008 3:58pm

@Michael Rawluk: I think they do! Remember, not too long ago almost 50% of the adult population smoked, now it's barely 20%, and even in bars smoking is prohibited! Thanks on behalf of Mathieu for the compliment!

There are walls like this in northern France. I love this photo

23 Jun 2008 8:25pm

Mathieu Chasse from Canada

Merci à tous pour vos commentaires. J'ai trouvé difficile de capturer l'histoire de ce mur en une seule image..c'était mon but avec cette photo. Je suis très heureux que vous l'ayez appréciée.

Thanks all for the comments. It's kind of hard to capture in a picture all the history of this wall. This was my goal with this picture. I'm glad people enjoyed.

23 Jun 2008 9:17pm

@Mathieu Chasse: C'est bien mérité Mathieu, bravo pour ton travail!

I see an ancient mural and ghosts of windows... most interesting.

23 Jun 2008 9:30pm

@Earnest: Maybe there are ghosts inside as well, coming out of hiding at the stroke of midnight? On behalf of Mathieu thank you for your comment!

neat shot of an old building. what exactly did they do here with tobacco?

23 Jun 2008 11:48pm

@danthro: I'm not sure as it was before my time in Granby, but I think they made mostly snuff and chewing tobacco. Thanks for your comment!

Jolie facade avec differentes couleurs de briques (peintes?). Un peu patchwork avec ces briques recentes pour reparer quelques endroits et boucher 2 fenetres.

24 Jun 2008 12:55am

@akarui: Oui, les couleurs sont des vestiges d'annonces peint sur le mur. Merci pour le commentaire,
