Share Your Story

Hamilton Public Library’s Local History & Archives department is a participating member of Flickr Commons - a project whose key goal is to “share hidden treasures from the world’s photography archives.” All images featured on Flickr Commons have no copyright restrictions and are free for users to download and use. 

Images have been selected and uploaded by Local History & Archives staff drawing from library collections and representing each of the four cultural icons identified by the Love Your City, Share Your Stories digital storytelling project.  The icons are music, libraries, Gore Park (fountain) and Tim Horton’s (coffee and donuts). 

We’re certain there’s no shortage of related stories to share and we would love to hear yours.  Individuals are encouraged to either comment on specific photos or share stories by contacting the Love Your City, Share Your Stories project team at
