Old building on the south side of the Grand River
O is for OLD
Elora is an old town on the Grand River, rich in history, abandoned buildings and photo ops. Click HERE to check out an earlier post on the Elora Mill.
This is one of the abandoned buildings on the southerly side of the river.
Grande River, Elora
As you can see in the above photo, the old buildings on the other side of the river are in considerably better shape.
Old buildings, young shoppers
In fact many are tourist attractions.
Remains of a furniture factory on the opposite side of the street
Even the buildings that are only partially there have been dressed up with flowers.
Closer look at one window box
And beyond the building walls and flower-boxed windows
New shops, older shoppers
...is a courtyard surrounded by shops selling touristy items.

Well, that's a fascinating place. I like the sky coming in through those windows. It seems to always matter from which side of the tracks (river) from which you come. Or something like that.
Oh I love these shots and I must say I love Elora I have only been once but look forward to getting back now that my daughter lives close.
The old stone on the buildings is fantastic. The older couple make me smile. B
I love the old stone! Glad they are taking care of this old place. Love all the flower boxes too!
my favorites today are the first one and the furniture factory. both are just beautiful and old. so if O is for OLD where is my pic?
Looks like an interesting place. Great detail in that first photo, I think I can count every brick and each leaf.
I would love visiting this place...and love that close up of the window box.
Kind of looks like our Jerome! A fun place to visit.
beautiful stone walls!
It's amazing that something old can still remain beautiful, despite being abandoned (can't really say the same for those post-WWII, brutalist concrete structures!)...I'm sure they will remain so for a long time...
it is a lovely place. I know a few people who have owned some of these shops and it certainly is a popular place.
Looks like a lovely place for a walk!
As for Pariscope, it's the "what's on in Paris" magazine!
I love those old stone buildings.
I've been to Elora. Can't remember when. My daughter went to Waterloo and I'm sure we trooped around!
Those shoppers are in great shape. I never have been! :-)
Elora got even prettier than I remember.
Your 2 posts make it a certainty that if I ever get back to Ontario to visit my brother in Kitchener, there will be a side trip to Elora!
Wow how fascinated I am by the first photo here! Exciting and lovely photos that I have enjoyed here!
The photo of *remains of a furniture factory* I also like a lot! :)
I love that old decorated wall, beautiful.
Looks like a great place to explore.
Very nice photos of this town. I would visit just to shop in Pariscope!
Looks like an interesting place to visit, nice shots!
I love all the ruins!
When will big-assed girls learn not to wear short shorts? (Maybe I'm just jealous ????)
I love when the walls remain and then nature fills in between. Beautiful shots!
I love old buildings. Fun post!
Elora is one of the better Ontario towns to explore. Your photos prove that Camera Girl.
This places looks awesome :D And I really like the photographs :) Thanks for sharing :)
How beautiful those old buildings are. I love that even though not in usable condition, they are still dressed up with flowers.
What atmosphere! I felt like crawling into these photos!
Those old buildings are beautiful.I love old cities, they give memories.
looks like a great place for a long stroll with a camera...
Beautiful photos of such a nice place too!
You did a great job of capturing these old buildings and walls.
Thanks for walking me through new territory♫
I love that first photo--what a great old relic
OH! What a lovely and amazing place! I completely love to see old buildings like that, with their remains shining on!
Elora looks beautiful--thank you for sharing. The photo of the young shoppers made me smile--long sleeved hoodies with short-shorts and flipflops. If it's cool enough to wear a hoodie, I'd think it would be too cold for bare legs too--but that's just me!
Of course, all your photos are excellent, but I love the one with the window box best of all.
how gorgeous! i love old buildings :3
I love this!
These are my favorite kind of places!
Amazing, just amazing!
Thanks for an outstanding link for the letter 'O'.
