I just ploughed through this entire thread (leaving my sleep for it and all), and I'm having an overdose. Just to tell how addictive it is.
Often, photos came back (sometimes even on the same page), but they were beautiful, so I didn't mind.
One thing, though, what do you mean with streetcar suburb?

I can't believe I never responded in this thread, but I FINALLY found the GOOD neighborhoods of Hamilton, and that will show those ignorant people who think Hamilton is a "total dump".

Durand and Westdale are absolutely incredible. Durand has to have one of the highest collection of Victorian homes in all of Canada!

Indeed, Durand can stand up to any neighbourhood in Canada.

You can add St. Clair, Kirkendall and Chedoke to the list of amazing pre-war inner-city neighbourhoods.

These are stuning pictures of some grand old ladies. I am moving to Hamilton from Alberta and hope to live in something similar but less expensive. Wish me luck. I am vey curious how the northend is changing. It is known to be very rough there. Does anyone know what the up and coming areas of Hamilton are?

The North End is one of the up-and-coming areas. Others are Stinson, Strathcona and Central.
Good luck with your move!

My wife and I are looking for a place in Hamilton. We want to get out of the Oakville Ontario 'burbs and back to the inner city. I stumbled upon this site and this thread, and am completely gobsmacked! I got 25 pages in and skipped ahead to see if it was still alive. Great to see that 4 years in, there is activity.

Flar, you have celebrated the architecture of Hamilton like no other. The time and energy you have devoted is amazing. Hamiltonians who care about their city should be doing cartwheels over this thread. It's dazzling.

Please publish a book.

I went to your site and saw a lovely image of my home town, Saint John N.B.

I am from Oakville as well and moved downtown Hamilton about 4 years ago. It is so refreshing to see such renewal and to be around dramatic growth. Not to knock Oakville, but it seems to sit dormant in comparison. Much more real-world here and filled with character. Enjoy it!

Wait a second! I don't think Dundas is or ever was a suburb of Hamilton. It's just as old or even older. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dundas,_Ontario

Definitely Dundas was not created as a suburb of Hamilton.

Dundas is older than Hamilton, and has a strong sense of identity and community. A lot of the long time residents have "Dundas Forever" signs in their windows in response to the forced amalgamation back in 2001. Nevertheless, it's a suburb of Hamilton these days. As it is, the old town is surrounded by new development and the population is now around 25,000. Even downtown Dundas is intensifying, with quite a few mid-rise apartments and condos. Dundas would probably be a quaint town of 5000 people if it was not the western border of Hamilton.

Anyway, I lived in Dundas for several years and it's the best place I've ever lived. The natural beauty of the Dundas Valley is unrivaled in Ontario.
