If you've ever taken the QEW over the James N. Allen Skyway between Burlington and Hamilton,
your eyes were probably fixated on the giant smoke belching steel mills of Hamilton Harbour.
But far below the skyway there is actually a vibrant neighbourhood that spans the long strip
of sand that separates Burlington Bay from Lake Ontario. In Victorian times, Hamilton Beach
was a summer playground for Hamilton's elite. Over the years, the neighbourhood has had its
ups and downs, but luckily, the current trend is up. Over the past few years many of the
remaining Victorian houses have been renovated while new developments are filling in the
blighted areas. The entire length of the beach strip is accessible and open to the public and
remains popular for summer recreation.
I've been waiting for these pictures for a while, and you definitely did not disappoint. Great pictures.
I was going to say that my favorite picture was the one of the lighttower with Toronto in the background, but then I saw the cleavage shot. Decisions, decisions...
I stopped by Hamilton Beach myself when driving back from Kitchener & Waterloo. When I post those pictures, you'll have to help me and correct me with the places in each picture: Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, etc.
