HAMILTON GEAR AND MACHINERY COMPANY, 950 DUPONT STREET, HAS A MUSCULAR HISTORY

RICHARD LONGLEY in NOW Magazine writes – “Founded in 1911, HAMILTON GEAR produced actuators that opened and closed the locks on the St. Lawrence Seaway; the pilot’s canopy of the Avro Arrow; and the sliding roof of the Rogers Centre (then known as the SkyDome). The company vacated the building in 1994, and suffered broken windows and graffiti. A magnificent specimen of Miesian Industrial beauty.”  <Photo above – Bob Krawczyk/Architectural Conservancy Ontario>
