Great to see so many familiar things from a new perspective (including Whale's painting of Dundas, of course!)

Will come back then and comment!

So here I am now, Robert.
Beautiful Osgood Hall!
Nice pics of Queen Street.
I completely fell in love with this painting called "The Market Place, Quebec".
The clouds in the background, the lovely buildings, and the people watching
the performance of two artists... - it somehow reminds me of the stories
about "Till Eulenspiegel" that I read as a child.

The painting "The Death of General Wolfe" is a masterpiece - we can feel
the emotions of the comrades in arms gathered around the General...


This was a great time, time of the sailing ships - love this painting with the
clouds growing up in the background:

On way back to Toronto - I think this is part of Hamilton and Dundas on the far out?
Photos were taken between about past 8 pm which explained the grainy quality.

The first six above show the steel mills on Hamilton Harbour and the "Mountain" (the Niagara Escarpment) behind. Taken from the Skyway Bridge? We're not far away to the right of those pictures. Enjoyed your images of the tacky side of Niagara Falls (Calton Hill) and that tiny wedding chapel.

What a sharp contrast between the Niagara Falls themselves, and all that

man has built around them, Robert!

From those photos of Hamilton, it looks like an industrial town, is there any interesting places to visit?
