You Might Be From Hamilton If…

  Author:   Graeme MacKay    
  Publisher:  MacIntyre Purcell Publishing Inc.

The Hammer. The Ambitious City. Steel town.

Canada’s tenth largest city, Hamilton, Ontario, has been called a lot of things. But Hamiltonians, near and far, know they can always come home to a place that has a rich history–and a lot of amusing stories only locals would know.

In comes Graeme MacKay, the editorial cartoonist for the Hamilton Spectator. As a Hamiltonian born and bred, he knows this city’s quirks, its characters and its love affair with being the underdog to Toronto’s “Centre of the Universe” mentality. With more than 120 cartoons, MacKay illustrates what so many people have come to love (and perhaps cringe a little) about this port city.

Founding father, George Hamilton, would be proud.
