Since Stelco Tower was completed in 73, I'm gonna guess this was taken in 72.

The photo was posted on Vintage Hamilton Facebook first.... and they do give details plus photo credits, which I thought we are supposed to do here...

I often wish the Pigott Building was about 10 storeys taller than it is. I'd feel the same about it, but it would have stood out more above the mundane stuff like Effort Square and First City Trust. :angel:

Most of those spots had gone by the time the mid to late 80s had arrived. It was still a pretty good place to get into mischief, however.

Looking along King William to Old City Hall in 1960. This was the last year this City Hall was still standing.

'Wheel goods.' Weird but very cool signage.

The store on the first floor of the Balfour building - does that say "Turner Wines"?

Of all the buildings that have been lost downtown over the decades, the old city hall is probably the one I would have most loved to have seen remain standing. She was gone way before my time though.
