Sounds very nice... could you post them, please?

I've made a note for myself to dig them up and post them over the holidays! One of the explosion scenes was quite spectacular and it looks like a nuclear holocaust in the photo!

Central
Hamilton, Ontario

Central is one Hamilton's oldest neighbourhoods. Quite a bit of older housing stock and some industrial areas remain in the
northern part of the neighbourhood. The southern portion is almost entirely gone, a victim of urban renewal projects. Parts
of Downtown Hamilton, as well as Hess Village, fall within the "official" boundaries of Central. As with the Beasley tour, I am
only showing the "neighbourhood" parts here.

Besides Hamilton Beach, are there any other lakefront neighborhoods in Hamilton? Or, is it all just old annexed towns along the lake, like Stoney Creek and whatnot?

Along the actual lake, just the Beach Strip is in Hamilton city limits, then it's Stoney Creek, Winona and Grimsby. Burlington starts somewhere along the strip where the skyway is.

Along Burlington Bay (Hamilton Harbour), there is the port and industrial areas, then the North End and Bayfront. Then you come to the High Level Bridge (York Blvd) which separates Burlington Bay from Cootes Paradise, which is the body of water that runs behind McMaster University (which is within Hamilton city limits) and then there is Dundas and the Royal Botanical Gardens. Back to Burlington Bay, the north shore is Aldershot, an older suburb with some areas of wealthy homes. Aldershot is officially part of Burlington.


Here's some interesting info about Aldershot, Hamilton and Burlington from LikeHamilton on SSP:
Quote:
In 1971, the then Conservative government was announcing plans for regional government to take place January 1st, 1974. Hamilton had always planed on Aldershot becoming part of the City of Hamilton. They had purchased land in Aldershot to make it easier to take over the area. They owned LaSalle Park, all of the cemeteries in that area, lands that went to the Royal Botanical Gardens and serviced the area with water. Even the Hamilton Fire Department went out to that area. The area was part of the old town of Nelson before Burlington swallowed it up and part of the riding of “Wentworth-Halton”.

The only problem was that there was a powerful Tory that represented that area, Bill Kempling, and in the last minute he managed to pull the rug out from Hamilton and end its quest for Aldershot. Aldershot became part of Burlington. Hamilton even at one time owned right up to the hospital on the beach strip. They gave it to Burlington, as it was too costly to service since they could not easily come through Aldershot to service the land. All of the lands surrounding “Hamilton Harbour” (proper name not Burlington Bay) were to be inside the city of Hamilton. So the lands under Waterdown would have been Hamilton and not Burlington.
Interesting, all of the waters of the harbour are in the City of Hamilton. Technically if the people in Burlington want to build a dock into the water of the harbour they have to get a building permit from the City of Hamilton. LaSalle park Marina’s docks are in the City of Hamilton. This irks Burlington and has been trying for years to get Hamilton to give up part of the Harbour to them.
