North American cities can be interesting and are quite different in character as you go east to west and north to south. Hamilton fits into the north and east quadrant and is often considered more similar to American rustbelt cities than other Canadian cities.

Incredible collection of beautiful photos (though not surprising from you). I'm wondering...is there alot of people moving to Hamilton for the cheaper housing and then commuting into the Toronto area? It seems like there's a large supply of cool, old housing in Hamilton that's probably much cheaper than in Toronto.

It's a working class city, people can seem a little gruff on the outside, but are usually very open and friendly. It's almost the opposite in Ottawa (where I live now). People in Ottawa tend to be extremely polite, but generally pull back and become cold and impersonal if you attempt to go beyond initial pleasantries.

The commute to Toronto is tough, but it seems more and more people are doing it. Hamilton's housing stock is excellent and still much cheaper than Toronto, but real estate prices keep going up and some of the more desirable areas like Kirkendall are starting to get out of most people's reach.

Words "awesome" and "great" would be only a blind shadow of real impression :-) The first one is the most incredible. Are there any ways of receiveng a hi-res copy of it? :-)

It's too bad you moved before you could show off ever corner of the city.

This city is right up there for streetscape atmosphere with Toronto and Montreal, also has this rustbelt nature you'll find no where else in Canada. (with the exception of maybe Windsor and St. Catherines)

Has charm and soul, unlike cities such as Vancouver and Calgary.

I got most of the oldest areas of the city, but it would have been nice to capture more of the evolution of neighbourhoods in the early 20th century. Heading east from downtown Hamilton through the lower city is like going through and urban museum where you can look at neighbourhoods in chronological order from the 1800s to 1950s.

Flar, last week I was visiting Paris and Cambridge (Ontario) and trying to explain to my friend about the houses with that pebbly cobblestone finish. Was there a specific time-frame that it was popular? I'm guessing around 1870ish. What is the basic structure of the house under the finish? Brick, or stone? Looks like a kind of plaster that had stones pressed into it, but I couldn't really tell.
