What a handsome city! Your threads make me realize that I haven't seen an inch of Ontario.

Nice town! I should come and pay it a visit someday. Shouldn't be too hard as I live about 30 minutes away.

It's aways such a treat to see Dundas - so many elegant Georgian and Victorian beauties and you did such a splendid job of photographing them.

well done!

I would definitely say Dundas is Canada’s prettiest suburb. Full of history, architect, culture, and beautiful natural surrounding.

Wonderful job flar! as always.

Thanks! Dundas certainly is beautiful, that's why I don't mind living in the suburbs. It's the choice of many artists and well-to-do retirees as well. There are some McMansions here, but most new development is medium density and mixed use. Retail is entirely focussed Downtown and at University Plaza, there is an almost total lack of big box stores here.

That shot was taken from the bridge-like structure about halfway up the mountain on Sydenham Rd.

I lived just up the mountain in Flamborough (Greensville) when I was a kid, so these pics bring back lots of memories. Carnegie Gallery, Picone's, Webster's Falls, the Horn of Plenty...wow. Thanks for the nostalgia trip
