This is the Talbot building in London, Ontario, which is all the information I have on it. This type of image takes a lot of correcting in photoshop on the perspective. The original file looked like a blue teepee.

Dundurn Cockpit at Dundurn Castle

Dundurn Cockpit at Dundurn Castle

This small building behind Dundurn Castle in Hamilton might easily be mistaken for a small chapel. It has been variously suggested that it is theater, a laundry, a boat-house, an office or a chapel for Sir Allan’s Roman Catholic wife. During restoration of the building, it was concluded to be a cock fighting pit, for the entertainment of guests. There is also talk of an underground tunnel from the castle to this building but I don’t think any evidence has been found of this.

Hamilton Waterworks Pumphouse- Steam Museum

Built in 1857 for the then staggering budget of $600,000, the Hamilton Waterworks Pumphouse provided clean water for the City of Hamilton. Before this time, cholera was epidemic in the city due to contaminated water, at times claiming over 500 lives in a year. It was a very impressive piece of engineering as it pumped 600,000 gallons of water per hour up 190 feet in height to a reservoir on the Niagara Escarpment.

The building is now the site of of a Steam Museum.
