Last Days Of A Once Proud Landmark

The former Ukrainian Cultural Centre on McCabe Avenue, off Southworth Street, is under demolition. Photo at bottom right shows the long-time cultural/social icon as it appeared Monday afternoon. The photographs were taken from outside the property through  the fence enclosing it because gates were locked. The hall was a hotbed of Ukrainian culture for decades, as it was for social events like wedding receptions, dances, community fundraisers, public meetings and more. The property has been earmarked for residential development for some time. (Photos by Joe Barkovich)
