Hi Dave,
Loved the Top Picture--hasn't changed much.
I can remember going to Hamilton for a Sunday drive from Toronto and getting the Best Hot Roast Beef Sandwich just across the street where this photo was taken,then go to the Stoney Creek Dairy for an Ice Cream Cone.
Is the 2nd photo showing the Touring stuck in the mud also in Hamilton?

I think that's a 1907 or 1908 Russell at the end of the row in the first photo. Great old pics--thanks for sharing.

Ian

Hi Don. Yes, all the pics were taken in Hamilton. I also like the top pic. That was when the automobile club was just that instead of a battery boost operation for people who don' t even know how to check their oil. Sadly, Stoney Creek Dairy finally went out of business and was torn down last year. If there was ever a reason to drive eastward, that place was it.

Here are a few more Hamilton pics. There are a couple of cars that show the unique, Canadian oval glass rear windows.

Ian and Charley
As a fellow Russell owner I am intrigued by your comments. The car parked at a angle looks like a White (probably steam) to me. Now the first car parked straight sure looks like a Russell.
I have a 1910 model 22 knight, 1913 model 28 knight, 1912 model 30 torpedo, 1915 light 6

Ok Don, you want more Hamilton photos, here they are. I wasn't going to post these because there are no close ups of the cars but, each picture does contain at least one Model T except the last pic of the Reo truck. It was too good not to post.

Glad you like them guys. Don, in the steam shovel pic, that is the ruins of the Lister Block on James Street downtown. It was built in 1886 and burned down in 1923. That same year, they built a new Lister Block building on the old foundation. Recently the newer building became the main symbol of neglect in our city and was fought over for decades while it decayed away. Last year, the building was finally restored to perfection as shown in the pic below. So for sure, that pic was taken in 1923.

Found one more Hamilton pic. Not certain where in the city it was taken. Can't quite read the year on the licence plate. Looks like a 1919-1922 car.
