Clearing the way for the University of Toronto's new Schwartz Reisman Innovation Centre, crews are in the process of demolishing the existing 1954-built Best building. Today's Daily Photo features a view of the building captured shortly after the start of the teardown. Shot by Marcus Mitanis, this angle shows the building's original brick finishes, an exterior fire escape ladder, and glimpses into the vacated spaces within the structure.
