This is an old Stelco tower used for manufacturing lead shot. It was built around the early 1900's.
What's interesting is that this remnant of the industrial age stands in a residential area. The former Stelco factory and offices have been converted to trendy condos and lofts.
On this website (visit link
) you can hear a song about the Stelco workers who were sick because of lead poisoning working in this factory.
