Having recently signed up for the boring postcard of the month club (see prior post) that sends me a boring postcard each month from Hamilton, I checked my vaults for other postcards from Hamilton, Ontario. Much to my delight, I found an incredibly boring postcard from Hamilton:
I guess it’s not hard to find a boring postcard from Hamilton, such is the city itself. Toronto and Hamilton have a rivalry – or rather a mutual hatred.
My friend sent this to me last year. Judging from the scalloped edges and the subjects, this postcard is a bit old. Probably not as old as one might think as Hamilton is truly very behind the times, so my estimate is this postcard is 3 or 4 years old. Here’s the back:
“Confederation Park – tourist camp. City of Hamilton – owned and operated Ontario…”
“Dear Glen. What could be sadder than a trailer park in Hamilton. Hard to believe this was the best image of the park and that this photographer wanted credit for it.”
My friend is wrong about this likely not being the best image of the park. I’ve been to Hamilton many times. This is not only the best image of the park, it’s the best image of the city!
