Corktown - Stories of a Neighbourhood

June 12 - August 14

Bill Manson has written extensively on various Hamilton neighbourhoods including the Durand, the North End and Kirkendall. This time, Bill focuses on Corktown, one of Hamilton's most historic neighbourhoods. From its beginnings as farm properties owned by the Springer brothers, and lots owned by speculator Colonel James Durand in the very early 1800's, through the decades that saw thousands of immigrants, many from Ireland, take up residence in Corktown, to today where a new energy is to be found on the storied streets of Corktown.

This multi-media exhibition runs from June 12 until August 14. In addition to the exhibition, Bill Manson will be conducting two H+HTalks and a walking tour. Admission is free to all talks and tours.

 

H+HTalk - Corktown - June 13 @ 1:00 p.m.

Walking Tour June 13 @ 2:30 p.m. (meet in the parking lot on the southwest corner of Main and Hughson)

H+HTalk - Corktown - July 4 @ 1:00 p.m.

Walking Tour July 4 @ 2:30 p.m. (meet in the parking lot on the southwest corner of Main and Hughson)

True, I would also have included Alvar Aalto. Would also have to take in consideration, that Finland has been under the control of Sweden long time ago. And Iceland should be considered as much part of Scandinavia as is Finland.
