An 18-year-old student has taken first prize in a contest to photograph of Peterborough’s historic downtown YMCA building.
The competition to take pictures of the building before it is converted into lofts and retail space was co-sponsored by the project developer Atria Development and the Peterborough Downtown Business Improvement Area.
