I've always been fascinated by the back of these old buildings. They face the main street downtown in St. Catharines (in Niagara Region). The street level are retail stores & the backs are apartments. At one time the view from the back looked over the first Welland Canal.

Thanks jomoud. Unfortunately the backs of these buildings have been neglected, while the store fronts are quite attractive.

Interesting industrial architecture. This sort of building no longer exists where I live.

Thanks for commenting twsottawan.

From the looks of them, I would think that these will eventually disappear as well & they will just keep the retail and office fronts.

Maybe neglected, but fascinating!
