Hintonburg
Ottawa, Ontario

Hintonburg is an older neighbourhood on the west side of Ottawa. A commercial strip runs through the neighbourhood along Wellington Street. North of Wellington is a working class neighbourhood of small wooden houses on narrow streets probably dating to around the turn of the century. The houses south of Wellington are mostly brick and appear to have been built later, some well into the 1920s and 30s. Today the neighbourhood is considered "up and coming" and seems popular with the artistic community.


We'll start in the area north of Wellington:



































Gambrel roofs are very common in Ottawa



















An old industrial area. Some factories have been replaced with modern infill.








The commercial area along Wellington St.





































South of Wellington, brick predominates.















Some post modern homes







The southeast section looks very upper middle class
