Keith Neighbourhood

This is one of the gritty north end industrial neighbourhoods that people associate with Hamilton.
Keith is centred around Wentworth St. North between the CN rail tracks and the harbour.
This is in the heart of Hamilton's old industrial area.

A true working class neighbourhood, where men once walked from their homes to their factories.

This was once a Studebaker auto assembly plant. The plant, which was Hamilton's 10th largest employer at the time, closed in 1966. (scroll->>)



A large part of the neighbourhood is near this plant





There is also a candy factory, still operating.

Things look a little rougher further north around Burlington Street.









Probably because this is nearby...


...and this (and other stuff)

The neighbourhood was built with alleys.



There are a few blocks of brick houses, all the same. Or close to the same, some are mirror images.

Some infill. These houses with sunken garages were built as infill all over the north end.

I'm beginning to fall in love with this city, really reminds be of the rise and downfall of some of the American cities during the industrial revolution. Do you happen to have pictures of the downtown skyline in this thread?

This thread is getting pretty long, I'm not sure if or where I posted skyline pics, so I'll post some below.
