THEN AND NOW

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Orig­i­nally con­structed in the 1850s as the Stan­dard Ho­tel, this circa 1910 post card de­picts the build­ing at 3136 Homestead Dr., Mount Hope, as the Tem­per­ance Ho­tel, one of many stopovers on the Plank Road run­ning south from Hamil­ton to Port Dover. To­day, the build­ing has been ex­ten­sively mod­i­fied for pri­vate res­i­dences. Changes to the out­side in­clude vinyl sid­ing and the cov­ered porch has been re­moved. Photos cour­tesy of the Golden Horse­shoe Post Card Club. For more in­for­ma­tion, go to www.gh­pcc.ca or call Jon at 905-388-5840.
