Just looking through some old archives of ideas for articles that I had that I didn’t end up following through with. One that caught my attention was in respect to the docks in Hamilton. Since it’s winter, we’ve quickly forgotten about how each summer the docks become overwhelmed and it becomes horrendous to be able to get anything through. I had taken a couple screenshots on google maps of Sir John’s proposed move of the docks to the north side of town. While I havn’t gone anywhere with the concept in terms of a full piece, I thought I’d post the screenshots anyway and perhaps revisit it again later.
Our current docks:
The wide open space above government house (sorry Mr. Governor, Bda might have to come first)
I really can’t help but look at that and see it as a perfect spot to relocate our docks to. I have little doubt that the issue will resurface and when it does, perhaps I’ll retouch on this thought again
