Chedoke Park

This often overlooked but very beautiful early 20th century neighbourhood is tucked under the Niagara Escarpment
southwest of central Hamilton and within walking distance of Locke Street. Most of the homes pictured are middle
to upper middle class, with some working class streets to the north and closer to industrial areas. The older
homes in this area are typically Edwardian, built up until about 1930. Tudor Revival starts to dominate the streets
built later, probably into the 1940's, with a few other revival styles are also represented here and there. Edwardian
and Tudor Revival seem to go very well together. There are several other neighbourhoods like this in Hamilton as well
as in many North American cities both large and small.

Lovely residential nabe! Is it pronounced Che-doe-kee? I was looking closely at this house:



and am pretty sure it was an older smaller house that has had several expansions. That Georgian doorway style was popular mid 1800's, and you can see in several places where the style of the house changes.

Its pronounced "che-doke", and its a great area of the city (especially if you like golf or hiking). Once Mac finishes building their "Innovation Park" on the other side of the train tracks, I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of people moving (or at least trying to move) to the area.

Also good to see the high ratio of recycling/green bins to garbage bags in those pics.

It almost looks like it was once a double house. I think you're right that there have been expansions, but I don't know how old it is. The entrance has the transom and side lights of the Georgian style, but also classical columns. Revival architecture was popular in the early 20th century so these elements could have been copied from earlier houses.

Interesting, I'll have to check out your site when I have a chance.

Hamilton City Hall still faces defacement:
City Council voted to replace the marble cladding on city hall with cheap precast cement slabs. The architectural firm in charge of the renovations resigned in protest of the decision. As an excellent example of the International Style, City Hall is a designated heritage building and the marble cladding is cited as a key feature. Incomprehensibly, it was city council that voted to designate the building! Now they have voted themselves an exemption from its heritage requirements. This sets a very bad precedent which threatens the preservation of other heritage buildings: others will now ask for exemptions and point to this travesty.


An old shot showing the rear of City Hall:
