Leith Street Revisited.

This is the same view as shown below, only this is before the 1920's. Factory #16 is at left, where the new #31 factory would be built. Factory #11 is at left beyond that. The tall factory in the distance at left is the old iron foundry #20. At the right of the street car is factory #12 sheet metal and beyond that is the old tool room factory #29 before it was raised to 3 floors. Industrial avenue is the cross road.

I took this photo in 2008. Original factory #31 is at left with old factory #11 trailing off in the distance.

This east facing view of Leith street shows the demolition taking place on old factory #11 which when combined with factory #66 and the new #31 (seen at left) axle plant; the combined factories simply became factory #31. The date of this photo is July 15, 2011.
