Panorama


Due to the high-quality resolution of the panoramic image below, you can expect the download to take a moment or two, but we believe it's well worth the wait! Use the arrow buttons to navigate around the panorama. You can also go into full screen mode by clicking the button to on the right. In full-screen mode, use your mouse scroll wheel to zoom in and out.

The BCLG commissioned this shot in order to show visitors the many layers of transportation activity that are crowded together in this district. This has been the “front door” of Hamilton for 150 years. As the image loads, you are looking north across Lake Ontario. Ship traffic comes to this point to enter Burlington Bay and Hamilton Harbour by passing through the canal. As you rotate the view, you will eventually be looking south across Hamilton Harbour at the Bayfront steel mills which historically provided the city’s economic base.


This panorama was created by Todd Lilley, Blimp Pics Low Altitude Aerial Photography. For more background on Todd's panoramas, visit his website.
