Why exit through the gift shop when the whole gallery is a gift shop?
Why exit through the gift shop when the gallery is Gift Shop? The 1891 building with its limestone and brick facade and distinctive half-round windows was most likely designed by James Balfour, Hamilton's leading architect of the late 19th century. The Victorian industrial structure originally housed a wholesale woolen yarns company. In the 1930s the building was home to an import-export business, in the 50s a print shop, and in the 80s a salon called Shalimar Coiffure. The scent of hairspray lingers into the present. A stone's throw from James Street North, Gift Shop is a 6-minute walk from the MacNab Transit Terminal, an 8-minute walk from the Hamilton GO Centre and 11 minutes by foot from the West Harbour GO station. Gift Shop is open by appointment only.
