Monday Mural

 Linking up at Monday Mural

February 2021 - Hamilton ON

From this visit to Hamilton.



Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario Lester Coloma has been professionally hand painting murals since 1996. He has since been awarded commissions for corporate clients including Caesar’s Casino Windsor, Whole Foods Market and Busch Gardens.
Coloma was commissioned to paint this portrait to highlight Hamilton’s claim to fame as “The Electric City”. In the late 1890s, Nikola Tesla helped establish a hydroelectric power plant in the city. With reliable and affordable power now available, Hamilton became an attractive manufacturing destination and “The Steel City” was born.










Missed this the first time we were looking for it.
Hamilton is home to one of only two airworthy Lancaster bombers left in the world. And the only one you can purchase a flight on via the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. For those who can't splurge on a flight, there's still lots of ways to marvel at this famous WWII plane with local flyovers, grounded at the museum and now – thanks to local artist Scott McDonald.
