From Gore Park the way it was, to the before and after of Jackson Square and of York Boulevard. But Jack Whorwood did not simply record the way it was. His images demonstrate his remarkable eye for urban details. They include the buildings in Hamilton's core, as well as the people who lived and worked in those buildings. His is an emotionally infused catalogue of the Hamilton that is now, for so many, simply history.
