Saturday Photo: One of North America's Most Loved Little Gardens

This house, not far from the Dofasco steel plant in Hamilton, Ontario, is a great example of how ordinary people have gone out of their way to make green spaces for themselves. Don't know when it was built, but the neighborhood was established in the early part of the 20th century to provide housing for workers within walking distance of Hamilton's many industries. Over the years houses have been been given additions and gardens have received constant care. If you want to learn more, see my essay at or check out the chapter on Hamilton in Green City: People, Nature and Urban Places.
