London trips me out. It's all by itself in the middle of Southern Ontario... nice place though.

Looks very nice. I can definitely see the appeal of the city for lycanthropic sheep ranchers.

Never been to London, even though I grew up across the lake from it in Erie... always just went to Toronto when we were looking for some Canadian urban action. Never quite understood why the city was not located about 30 miles to the south where Port Stanley is on Lake Erie, rather than on an unnavigable river?? Hopefully, the cargo and passenger ferries between Erie and Canada's southern shore like they had back in the day come to fruition. Anyway, seems like a pretty nice place. Anyplace that's the home of John Labatt's fine brew is okay in my book. I think Eric Lindros might hail from London, yes?

Huh, I never even gave London any attention during any of my trips to Souther Ontario. I guess I should take a second look next summer.
Thanks for the pics. Very nicely done.

i've complained before that we don't see enough of london. there must not be many forumers from sw ontario. it really is a good city; if only it were a little bigger. it kinda has a small city feel to it. great photos. thanks for the tour.

cma: approximately 450,000

as the name might suggest, london was founded with the intention of it being the national capital. there were several reasons why this didn't play out, not the least of which was its relative isolation.

They even called the River "Thames River". They had such hopes for it.


..Isolated. Hehehe.

That is one city I really would like to visit. I have been to Hamilton, Toronto and Windsor, but have never made it to London.

London is a very nice city, it was my home from '94 to '02.

They used to have a minor league baseball team named the Werewolves of London. Their stadium, Labatt Park, is the oldest continually used ballpark in the world (since 1877).

He is from London. He also briefly went to University of Western Ontario in London (at the same time as me, I met him once).

The city itself is about 350K.
