Kenilworth Ave.

East Hamilton


I never really knew East Hamilton, these are the few photos I took
in that part of the city over the years, mostly on Kenilworth Ave.





Kenilworth Ave. is the main thoroughfare from the East Mountain to the steel mills and port area.

Barton and Kenilworth








Cannon










Sherman Ave North






Beach Road, not anywhere near the beach, but led there in the old days.
Beach Road still has a bus route and runs through a small neighbourhood called McAnulty tucked-in beside Dofasco.














Parkdale, another commercial street running north-south like Kenilworth, but younger.










Melvin Ave.




Queenston
The Derby is probably demolished by now, to be replaced with a shiny new Drug Store.
With beer priced out of the competition, pharmacies are free to take over.




Main and Kenilworth

Kenilworth heads toward the escarpment.

This is the Hamilton that I think the average Joe pictures in his mind.

Rough, no doubt, but as with any of these places, full of character.



Look like dude's yelling at you. Ha!

Gritty areas can be so fascinating. Like others said, lot's of character and stories embedded in these shots. I really like the library building.

It may be rough but it sure is enjoyable to view. That part of town has some character. Thanks for sharing!

this type of "endless" 4-lane commercial corridor reminds me of Cleveland

Thanks!

There is plenty to explore in the east end. There is a huge area of East Hamilton built in the first few decades of the 1900s that helps define the city in many minds. I would have especially liked to get more residential shots, the houses further east are a bit less interesting visually than many of my other tours, but there are a few interesting neighbourhoods and some history that I would have liked to show.

We are lucky to see these quickly disappearing streetscapes! Especially with you taking these incredible pictures!
I guess Ottawa seems almost sterile after Hamilton doesn't it?

You've got a knack for starting your threads with dynamite photos.
