About this title

Synopsis:

Pioneers, soldiers, merchants, murderers, workers and bosses--all contributed to the colourful history of the tough, attractive city of Hamilton.

Popular historian Bill Freeman tells the story of the city from the time of its earliest habitation through the War of 1812, on to its heyday as a major manufacturing centre. The key roles that the railway and Hamilton's spectacular geography played in the city's development are fully described, and the many forceful personalities who shaped Hamilton's history are brought to life. Bill Freeman's lively account superbly balances social, political, and labour themes to give the reader a deep understanding of the city's past.

The product of extensive research, illustrated with over 200 contemporary and archival images, Hamilton: A People's History offers a vivid portrait of one of Ontario's most prosperous and appealing cities.
