This is the eastbound Jarvis St off-ramp looking west.
This is as Canadian as concrete gets! It is not the letters CNE stamped in the concrete but rather what the concrete is made of. If you look closely, you can make out the smooth pebbles that the cement is mixed with. This type of concrete is found throughout Canada; in Brutalist buildings, concrete benches and the ground we walk on in places like Montreal’s Olympic park. It must be a lot of work hauling these around but I hope they keep them to remind us of our architectural past.
– Note the architectural details at the front of the elevator.
– The two large dark towers are moveable “marine legs” that take up grain from docked ships.
– Buffalo is/was considered the “elevator capital” of America.
