And further to Graham's historical tidbit, the stained glass was removed and sold because the city wanted to demolish the building, but preserve a few artifacts. Amazing to think we almost sent this beauty to the trash heap like so many other great Hamilton buildings. You can bet your life fortune, that had we demolished it, there would be a nice parking lot in it's place to this very day. A lot of cities demolish old buildings for new buildings. We demolish them for parking lots.

Thankfully this one was preserved. Great piece. A really enjoyable read.
