Hamilton the Beautiful

One of the few redeeming qualities of the urban nightmare formerly known as the Hamilton Eaton Centre is a glass dome which sits above the centre court of the mall. At the base of the dome are various copper figures carrying letters which spell out such ironic words as "Culture."

Probably the only sepia-toned building I've ever seen, the Medical Arts building on James Street stands as a massive hulk of a building housing various doctors and clinics related to the adjacent St. Joseph's Hospital.

Hey, how'd she get in here? Next....
Far off in the distance, Hamilton's steel industry continues to belch out poison while providing a healthy income to the ever-dwindling group of proud blue-collars. Sometimes, however, you have to concentrate on the beautiful right before your eyes. This shot was taken from atop the Escarpment near Concession and Upper Wellington Streets.
Atten...TION! This wonderful relief of an officer is located at the back (officer's) entrance to the Hamilton Armoury on Hughson Street.
All shots taken Monday, June 19, 2006 at various locations in Hamilton, Ontario.
