Beschreibung

Founded as Fort Hamilton in 1791, the City of Hamilton was settled by pioneers and immigrants and was forged in steel by her talented workers and craftsmen. Factory owners became wealthy and built magnificent homes along Dayton Street. Hamilton prospered and became known as the "Greatest Little Industrial City of Its Kind in the World," home to Mosler Safe Co., Ford Motor Co., Beckett Papers, and many others. Following World War II, some factories closed their doors or moved away, but Hamilton persevered and became a city powered by small business and the arts. Through vintage images, this book showcases Hamilton's success, its survival of the Flood of 1913, its blue-collar job loss, and now, its rise as the "City of Sculpture," attracting sculptors from across the world.
