Thanks Matthew, It's amazing that someone can research this information and post it for others to enjoy, all from his armchair in Canada.
I have found it very interesting, thanks again.

It looks like its a fairly recent demolition. ?
The satellite view I get on google maps still shows a factory there, 2019 imagery.
Not from street level though...

Edit. Which is the link you have above.
Which raises the question of how did you get a later aerial view ?

IDK, I just entered the plant address in Google Maps.

Don’t forget to use the time machine function on Google Maps, where you can look at the past google map photos of the same place over time.
