Bank of Hamilton Building

From the April 28, 1920 issue of the Border Cities Star.

PROPOSED BORDER BANK BUILDING

The above engraving is from a sketch made by McGrifin & Smith, Toronto architects, of the proposed building for the Bank of Hamilton at the corner of Ouelllette avenue and Chatham streets, Windsor. Tenders are now being called for and it is said to be the intention of the bank to proceed with construction work as soon as possible. The front and Chatham street side of the building will probably be of stone. The bank intends to occupy the entire first floor, the other parts of the building being available for office purposes.

I have no idea why this one didn’t get built. The Bank of Hamilton merged with the Bank of Commerce in January 1924, so it’s not like the bank ceased to exist after these plans were drawn.

Too bad, this would have been nice to have downtown, although it would probably have been demolished by now even if it had been 🙂
