I suspect some are definately stills taken off video from some place.......but the thing is that most of us don't have the "some place" to begin with
This is a wonderful project the guy made available for every fan of the CFL.
My favourite shot is the front of Civic Stadium with the hot dog cart right where the North stands are presently.
I love taking peeks back into history. Here's how bad I am. I recently cycled the rail trail from around Stonechurch Rd. all the way down to Wentworth St. steps in the city. So after riding around town for awhile, I took on the challenge of carrying my mountain bike up the 500 stairs......well, it took me over an hour because I kept jumping off the steps to study the old evidence that is still there from the ancient Wentworth Street Incline......and by the way, after doing that climb up the steps, I'm all for getting a brand new incline railway built.
(for those who don't know what the Wentworth St. Incline was, here's a great photo.........it was like a ferry that went up and down the side of the mountain.....there were actually three in Hamilton at various points along the escarpment)
Deerhunter: Thanks for the football photos, and for the incline RR photos. I live in Edmonton now (for 20 yrs), and grew up in Hamilton, and I just love those historical shots. My Mother's family lived in a house at the top of Wentworth St. just after the war, very close to where the incline started. Just love Hammer history. Thanks man!!
And aside from history, here's a great poster which shows 20 of our most prominent city waterfalls.......
I always send this link far and wide to people who think Hamilton is a grimy, dirty industrial city.......then I challenge them to show me any city who has this kind of stuff within it's city limits.....there are actually more than 120 waterfalls....
