National Steel Car- Hamilton

I usually don't have much to say about Hamilton Ontario in a positive light. However this building in the east end is a fantastic example of Art Moderne architecture. It's the entrance gate to National Steel Car and appears to undergoing a very tasteful restoration.
Another classic example of Art Moderne is the Carlu in Toronto.
The Round Room at the Carlu.
Another lost example of Art Moderne at the corner of Yonge and College/Carlton.
The film playing, The New Centurions was released in 1972.
The car is, of course a AMC Gremlin, voted one of "The 50 Worst Cars of All Time" by Time magazine.


  1. fantastic pictures!!!

  2. Hamilton doesn't have a lot to say about you in a positive light, other than you sound like just another pompous ass from Hogtown. Get your head out of yourself and look around.

  3. You could be a spokesperson for the Hamilton Tourism Board.

  4. I moved from Toronto to Hamilton one year ago. The Hammer is a wonderful town, with its own personality, and distinct natural and cultural ecologies. You ought to try harder to be smart.
