I took these recent pictures from the top of Mount Trashmore at McLennan Park. The camera zoom distorts distances and I was surprised to see I had both St. Mary’s General Hospital and Grand River Hospital in the same picture. They are actually 3.5 kilometers apart. The picture below focuses on the Cedar Street Hill and the neighbourhoods around Mill, Courtland, Church and Benton Streets in the centre of Kitchener. St. Joseph’s Church at Madison and Courtland is in the bottom right and the abandoned Arrow Shirt factory on Benton Street is to the right of the old Cedar Hill water tower.
