Burlington Timelines

Did you know that back in 1964, consultants recommended that Burlington should implement a one-way street system in the core? Or, that in 1914, it was the Nelson Township ratepayers who chose the site for a new school, later to become Strathcona.

As a new feature, we will publish historical timelines, highlighting Burlington news items from 50 and also from 100 years ago as part of a blog on our Canadian Heritage Books website. At the present time, we have posted Burlington Timelines for January of 1914 and 1964, but will be adding to it on a regular basis so that it should be updated weekly.

You can check out the blog at: http://www.canadianheritagebooks.com/burlington-timelines.html

Vanished Hamilton IV chapter excerpt

Vanished Hamilton IV is scheduled to arrive next week, but in the meantime, we will post a few chapter excerpts from this last book in the popular Vanished Hamilton series!
Abstract sculpture
It was playful and controversial
"Public art can be traditional or controversial. Hamilton has had its share of both over the years.....In 1954, the City of Hamilton was just putting the finishing touches on the new Health Centre, located on the northeast corner of James Street South and Hunter Street East.

Suddenly, on a concrete pad in front of the building, Hamilton's first outdoor specimen of abstract art appeared as if by magic. No actual magic was involved. The artist, 27-year-old Bill McElcheran of Dundas, had installed it on the evening of the 14th.

It was a playful looking sculpture with soft curves and three balls balanced between two of the arms. It was modelled directly in cement over a steel armature, with a plastic coating to make it smooth, and the spheres were plastic covered wood."

Be sure to pick up your copy of Vanished Hamilton IV to read more about why this sculpture was such a controversy! Pre-order your copy today from our website and save 30%! http://www.canadianheritagebooks.com
