Norton Palmer Hotel

Continuing with the postcard theme, here is an undated postcard, probably from the mid 1940’s, showing the Norton Palmer Hotel, which was located at Park and Pelissier.

It was built in 1927, and expanded in 1929. Designed by architects Hutton & Souter of Hamilton, who also designed Windsor Assembly, along with the old GM Office Building at Walker and Seminole. It came down in 1975, just before the Prince Edward that we looked at on Monday.

The building was far more attractive at the street level than what’s there today.
