City Streets- ‘Whoo- da-Thunk?’

City Streets- ‘Whoo- da-Thunk?’

 I’m sure like all of us. your city is routed mostly by its streets. Each one named, but why that name? 1,607 Canadian communities have a Main St. The number one though is 2nd street with 2,022. Whooda Thunk? What about all the other street names.  would they probably have a window into local history,  from every different layer of a city’s past.
The city I have chosen for my first Whoo-da -Thunk?   is Hamilton Ontario

George Hamilton (1788–1836) was a Canadian merchant and politician, who founded the city of Hamilton, Ontario.
Hamilton, Ontario, incorporated as a city in 1846 with a population 6,832. Population is now 747,545. Feb 8, 2017
And the street I chose Aberdeen. So let start at the very beginning and follow the yellow brick road…..Here we go,,,


Aberdeen Ave in Hamilton Ontario,  was named after Lord John Hamilton-Gordon, 1st Marquess of Aberdeen and Temair) & Lady Aberdeen, Ishbel Hamilton-Gordon, Marchioness of Aberdeen and Temair). They lived in Hamilton on Bay Street South (1890-1898) with their four children. They presided over the opening of the Hamilton Public Library on September 16, 1890.Lord Aberdeen was appointed Governor General of Canada in 1893
