Very nice! A lot of that reminds me of Virginia Park, Brush Park, and Woodbridge in Detroit. This kind of architecture really took hold in this areas of the continent.

There isn't enough film in Rochester to capture all the Victorian beauties in Hamilton. Thanks very much for trying though.

p.s. Have you run out of Ottawa neighbourhoods? I don't remember a Glebe tour. U of Ottawa? Kanata? Hehehe.

Haha, so true.

There are still a few left in Ottawa: Westboro/Island Park, OttawaU, Rockcliffe Park, maybe Old Ottawa South. With the exception of Rockcliffe, these are unremarkable. My problem with Rockcliffe is that it's not very walkable and many of the houses are hidden behind gates and trees. Kanata will not happen, I did Barrhaven and that's close enough

I did tour the Glebe already, all my Ottawa tours are listed here: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...40&postcount=3

Nice pictures! It's good to see a Hamilton thread from you again. I like that it happened in a warm-weather month; it prepares me for my trip up to the area later in the summer.

Looks a lot like the borders of St. Jamestown in Toronto, and Bloor and Dovercourt.

It was probably built in the 1850s, I bet there's stone under the stucco coating.

It looks like it's under renovation right now:
