I really enjoyed this tour thanks. Hamilton never looked so beautiful. I love the different scenes, the run down ness, the beautiful historic buildings, the cracks, overgrown grass, the garbages, and boards.

(yes i really like gritty scenes )

Oh, and this thread? Pure sex.

Nice pictures. It's nice to see in pictures, but I don't know if I could ever live around this kind of stuff all of the time.

Great stuff and outstanding photography. I like it when you explore the gritteir side of Hamilton. You're not too far Montreal now so it would be cool to see your take on Montreal too.

Is nowhere safe from Gordon Bloody Ramsey?



This is a fantastically sympathetic portrait. The picture of the boys running down the street reminds me of those classic shots of London in the war.

Excellent photos. Hamilton has soul. What is the metro population? It looks it was built to be a pretty big city.

You won't find too much grit in Ottawa, and to say it's on the tame side would be an understatment. But I have some pretty good Ottawa threads coming up.

Some people blame the automobile, suburbanization, the one way street system, or the removal of streetcars and trolleys. Those are all contributing factors but the number one reason is the loss of tens of thousands of blue collar jobs over the past few decades.

Only two hours away, but I barely even have time for photos in Ottawa these days.

Hamilton is a little big city. It has many of the attributes of a big city, mainly because about 40% of the metro area, and almost all of Hamilton proper, were built before 1950. The city pop is 504,000 and the official metro is 731,500 but it depends how you look at it. Hamilton and Toronto form one continuous urban area of around 6 million people. There are around 2 million within about a half hour of downtown Hamilton, which is why people keep trying to get an NHL team in the city.
