The Queen Street Fire: Ruined Streetscape

As the historic buildings of Queen on this block burnt down last week the office building beyond looks all the more dramatic and somewhat out of place. Demolition began early this week at the site to remove the mostly burnt down buildings.

Wow. I read about this in the Globe but hadn't seen any good pictures of it. Aside from being a good picture, this conveys the extent of the damage! What a shame.
Great dramatic picture! It must have been a hell of a fire!
Nice bit of reportage style photography, with old and ruined.

Crikey,

But it makes you think how accidental such a convenient fire must be - ripe of development now!

555 Richmond looks so coldly futuristic and scary.
