Cool ROWS of Houses

For your urban viewing pleasure: many rows of houses.

Not rowhouses, just rows of single or double houses.

Neat thread and great pics.

Based on these it seems that Hamilton must have had a fair number of speculative builders in the first few decades of the 1900s. It's hard to find rows of identical houses in Toronto and when you do they are generally examples of the (relatively few) speculatively built projects here.

Plenty of speculation in Hamilton. I read a book that used Hamilton as a case study for examining the history of housing development, "Housing the North American City." It was an interesting but very long book and I think these photos show why they used Hamilton as a case study.

Around the time many of these houses were built (1900-1920), hundreds of factories opened in Hamilton, including some extremely large ones that employed thousands of people each. That was also the period of Hamilton's fastest population growth.

Incidentally, many people believe Hamilton is full of company housing, but as far as I know, there is very little of that.
