The density comes from the houses, they're really packed in













A narrow little street

Some odd looking flat roofed houses



There are some rowhouses in Landsdale, but they don't predominate







This is a neat looking little row

Some areas have a hodgepodge of early housing

Ivor Wynne Stadium is a ways east of this neighbourhood, probably close to a mile. The stadium neighbouhrood is Stipley. I haven't taken many pictures around that area except South Stipley, which I partially showed in the St. Clair tour (because it is more similar to St. Clair than north Stipley.

I still haven't explored most of Hamilton east of Sherman and north of King/Main. It's a huge area that was built up quickly starting in the early 1900s. There are a lot more modest frame houses further east, often owner built, but also many subdivisions with homes built by speculators as evidenced by identical homes side by side. There are some commercial streets out that way too. One I showed on here was Ottawa Street, which is now the fabric and textile district. Kenilworth and Parkdale are the other main streets running north-south, both suffering commercial vacancies and decline. The east-west commercial streets in East Hamilton are King, Main and Barton, all with varying levels of retail health.

Good shots of the gritty part of Hamilton although somewhat depressing at the same time.

The person that lives here should at least get rid of that horrible looking couch lying in his backyard.
