The Film:

People and the Bay, a story of Hamilton Harbour

Based on the book of the same name, People and The Bay, showcases a history of the relationship between the people of Hamilton, Ontario, and Hamilton Harbour (a.k.a. Burlington Bay). From the time of European settlement through to the city’s rise as an industrial power, townsfolk struggled with nature, and with one another, to champion their particular vision of “the bay” as a place to live, work and play. To learn more about the film and the book visit the Book Website. Abstract sourced from book website.
