William Thomas was an English-trained architect who was one of the most important practitioners in 19th century. Judging by the date of this building, it is likely one of Thomas’s first and largest commissions in Hamilton and an early example of his work in the city. Most of Thomas' buildings located in Toronto are National Historic Sites of Canada or designated under the OHA, including the Old Don Jail and St. Michael's Cathedral and Oakham House, among others. Thomas was a brilliant and widely known architect during the peak of his career and has left a distinct built legacy in Ontario, Nova Scotia, Quebec and England. Here is a directory of Thomas' work, including a comprehensive list of his ecclesiastical, residential, commercial and institutional buildings in Hamilton http://www.dictionaryofarchitectsincanada.org/architects/view/1355
