Healing Power in Letting Go

Healing Power in Letting Go, originally uploaded by Allan H..

This image is likely to become part of the Steeltown Neighbourhoods project. These two old derelict properties are on on the western edge of Hamilton’s St. Clair neighbourhood.

An area resident told me that the local SWAT team used to use the one on the left as a tactical training house. Neighbours used to watch the police run breeching drills by smashing in doors, popping off flash-bang grenades and storming in with assault weapons.

Now that both buildings just sit vacant, I’m seeing a new story unfolding about their moments in the sun.
