All but the last photo could have been shot in Kansas City. But I doubt that is correct. So I'm guessing.......somewhere nice with a port.

The bridge looks like the Julien Dubuque bridge, but big lake vessels never make it there, so I'm going to guess that the bridge is the Blue Water Bridge linking Port Huron, MI to Sarnia, ON.

Portsmouth?

I've never been there - but that looks a bit like the Piscataqua Bridge, and there's an old lift bridge in the background, and I think theres a lot of industry on their bay.

I believe it may be Portsmouth, NH. Here's a view from the opposite side of the Piscataqua Bridge....

Just a wild guess - Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
We have a winner, eh!

My grandparents lived in Hamilton for many years, with a view like this from the Niagara Escarpment.



Hamilton often gets a bad rap because it was a steel town and manufacturing centre for so long, and suffered like Buffalo, Cleveland, and other Great Lakes cities. Still, it has some wonderful neighborhoods and attractions.

You said it was a nice city with a port. You lied ;)
It's so sad... I had always heard that Torontoans were jealous of their great neighbour, I just never thought I'd see it here. ;)

Wow, what a surprise. None of the photos really gave it away to me. It was actually the brick Victorian architecture that made me think of Ontario. Then, I kinda put the puzzle on the basis the fact there's a bridge over a water body. And made a guess!

That ain't nothing. Go the Cafe at www.urbanphoto.net for TRUE intra-Canadian City bashing :)

So what's up with Hamilton, ON?

When did it lose its status in relation to hierarchy of urban centres in Canada? Why did this happen?

Has Hamilton simply become another bedroom community of Toronto?

Or is Hamilton just rusting away as commuters zoom along the Burlington Skyway (the pictured bridge), the QEW, and the 403?
