The old and abandoned cannery

Rockabilly and old cars

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (Quebec), Canada

The place is big, very big. While the building is nearly 200,000 square feet, the site, meanwhile, is over than 430,000 square feet in an agricultural area of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. For those interested, the site is for sale and the current owner requires more than $ 400,000 for it. "Ideal for businesses specialized in transport and storage," says the announcement.

The Park lane café

Located just to the left of the main structure, the Park Lane Café was a mythical place in the 1990s where every Friday, there were more than 200 owners of old cars to come meet other fans and eat some french fries in a retro atmosphere.

In April 2011, a project to reopen is filed at the city, accompanied by a petition signed by over a thousand people. In the autumn of the same year, fans were given an appointment there and the crowd was estimated at a few hundred visitors.

Today, I could not tell if the coffee is still open, because although everything was closed during my winter visit, I would tend to believe that the place must be open in the summer and closed in winter.
