Take a look at Sudbury's most unique piece of architecture

Sudbury isn't exactly well-known for it's architecture.

Sure, we've had our share of notable buildings but many have long-since been knocked down to make way for parking lots and shopping malls.

But there is one building in Greater Sudbury that is as unique as a snowflake — and shaped like one too: Science North.

To honour Sudbury's most unique piece of architecture, we've dug up some old photos from of our stainless steel science centre from the Greater Sudbury Archives, Science North itself, and our own archives.

Take a look in this week's episode of's Throwback Thursday in which, this being the year of Canada's 150th Anniversary, we celebrate a little bit of Greater Sudbury's history.
