Consumer's Glass in Hamilton Update.

The main glass production building of Consumer's Glass in Hamilton has been demolished to make room for self storage lockers. A major loss for film production. Films such as the Hulk, The Summit and many others made good use of the machinery and catwalks over the years. The area in blue is the demolished portion.

A big chunk of glass slag remains.
As it was before.

Old Wood Frame House

This wood and insulbrick house on Huron is one of very few non brick homes remaining in the city.
This Victorian house on Garden Avenue in Parkdale was torn down recently.
