Ontario's Forgotten Landmarks: Ghosts Of Steeltown

These empty shells speak to a forgotten past, and point dismally to the future of all buildings. Paraphrasing Paul Virilio, one might say that architecture itself is merely the art of making ruins. It is hard to believe now, but as recently as a few decades ago, Hamilton Ontario was a major rival of Toronto's when it came to entertainment and the like. Here's a closer look at these ghosts of memories - a look inside some of Hamilton's silent buildings.

Where did one stay, in this booming steeltown? Whenever I arrive in Hamilton to explore, my first stop is always the roof of the city's tallest building, where I am able to see my 'golden triangle' of abandonments from my perch. Above the false ceiling in the main theatre area is the building's original roof, housing a stunning fallen balcony. Perhaps the city's most noted entropic space is the infamous Lister Block.

However, there was no soldier stern enough to pry Paige Bennethum of Laureldale, Pa. from her father as he prepared to leave last July for a year-long deployment in Iraq. Abby Bennethum captured her daughter's emotions in a photograph that she passed along to the Reading Eagle, the newspaper in Berks County, Pa. Army Reserve Staff Sgt. "I didn't want to let go of him," she told NBC Philadelphia. Sgt. Abby Bennethum said she got pregnant right before her husband left for Iraq.

Staff Sgt. "Gotta go," he told his family. "I called her a couple of times, but she wouldn't budge," her mother said. TIPPED OUT - All photos: Kristin Ess + post designed by kristin ess Lots of emails this week asking for a tutorial on Lauren’s temporary bright colors.


Here I’ve replicated the process for you in 7 steps on an extension. While I never recommend bleaching out the ends of your hair at home, if you want to do the fun colors yourself, maybe get the tips bleached out by a pro + then play with the temporary colors on your own. The best things about this color– you’re able to hide it in a bun for work if you need to, AND you’re only doing a couple of inches on the bottom so it won’t kill you to cut it off if you get over it quickly.

TOOLS: highlighting comb, clips, foils, color brush, hair bleach with the appropriate volume (always seek a professional when using bleach), light pink color, dark pink color, light blue, dark blue, clear gloss. Step 1 Highlight the tips of the hair using hair bleach with the correct volume. Step 3 Shampoo and lightly condition bleach out of the hair.
