That one nature pic reminds me of the African savannah. Great pix.

You really love this town, don't ya? I must admit it seems like a cool place. If I visit Toronto, I'd definitely want to make a trip to Hamilton, Ontario.

Awesome set there! I cannot believe those photographs were taken all around Hamilton. Some look like they're right out of the African Safari while others look like they're right out of the tropics. Superb photography as always.

It's a great place for photography. A few weeks ago I went through the thousands of photos I took over the years I lived there, picking out the good ones that didn't appear in my other threads. I posted these and these, and this is the final set.

So Hamilton has a pretty side, too! Great set - the one with the two figures under the bandstand is perfect.

Great to see this old factory in such good condition - was is it/was it used for?

This was the original pump house building for the Hamilton Waterworks, dating back to 1859.

Awesome housing stock. Great natural destinations near by. Hamilton seems like a real livable kind of city. Note to self: check out Hamilton. Nice shots.

Nice pictures. Some are clearly extras from other threads, and since I remember most of the pictures from those threads, I can see why you didn't post all of them at once. However, some seem to be completely new images, which makes me wonder why they were never shown in the first place? The sixth picture is a good example.

Where was the seventh picture taken? (I also wanted to know where the sixth picture was taken, but someone pointed that out already.)

Cool, thanks! It's great to see examples of this kind of restoration/reuse.

the seventh photo is downtown, on hughson north near the corner of king william. I believe it's still owned by Ontario Hydro. It was previously part of Hamilton Hydro.

Yes it is still owned by Horizon Utilities (aka Hamilton Hydro). It is called the metering building. They service and test all of their hydrometers there.

Add to that easy access to Toronto and Niagara, plenty to do in Hamilton itself, low cost of living and you have, in my opinion, one of the best spots to live in Canada. The only thing missing is good jobs (good jobs in Hamilton, there are good jobs in the region, but I prefer to live and work in the same city).

95% of these have never been posted, some are different angles of scenes that I posted before. The others are remasters of shots that were posted in old threads deleted long ago.

This is the last of my new material on Hamilton.

Complete index of my over 50 threads (not 5 million) on Hamilton and its neighbourhoods:

Thanks everyone!

I will never get tired of looking at Hamilton.

Which waterfall is that in the second photo?

wow

These are soooooooooooo amazing. Hamilton has the huge advantage is that it is arranged to provide great vantage points to look at itself. And the brick buildings including even those in #21 ( I used own one of those houses ) have a real appeal. I live in the prairies now - but I will always miss Hamilton.

But your skill in creating these pictures is very special. Thank you for sharing these.
