This is the kind of "artistic" article I like seeing at Raise the Hammer. It pertains directly to Hamilton, it contains well researched facts and good photography to illustrate points and notes of the architecture it's talking about and comes across as feel good interesting facts, not an essay on intangible, whimsy notes of how society is collapsing.

Well written and well done.

As a side note, I actually like the appearance of the Ohio sandstone and whirlpool sandstone for the "blackened" effect they have on some of the buildings in Hamilton. It adds a certain Gothic charm to the various churches that seem to utilize it. Not as much a field-stone, which I fell in love with driving along the shore, looking at the cottages between between Port Elgin and Southampton, but I like them all the same.
