Aerial Photographs of the Hamilton Area

The collection consists of approximately 18,000 aerial photos in various sizes and formats dating from 1919 to the present.
Digital, scalable images have been linked from the indexes for those aerial photos that are no longer restricted by copyright.
All other air photos are available only in paper, hard-copy format and must be viewed in the Map Collection.
The City of Hamilton also has digital air photo overlays available as a feature of its imapper viewer on the map.hamilton.ca website. The photos cover the years from 1999 to the present.
