Here is an artist's sketch of Hamilton Pottery that was located at the end of our street. There is an old Chinese grocery store there now that is destined to be torn down for low inpact condos. Hamilton Pottery represents the good ole days when our dishes were made in North America. We are located on the railway tracks so it was easy for them to ship wares on the old THB (Toronto, Hamilton, Buffalo Railway. Imagine how many people were gainfully employed making pots for Canadian kitchens. I first saw some of the pots from Hamilton Pottery in the collection at the Burlington Arts Center. Really awesome work.
