I remember the day I walked the neighborhood looking for vestiges of the Bromley of yesteryear and here we are 27 years later, and these photos taken with one of those antique 35 mm cameras once again come alive with photos of vintage Bromley structures. Few people realize this historic area of Hamilton which dates back to the colonial era when the Anderson Farm, which was once located on the city line in the area of today's North Logan Avenue, extended all the way out to the Greenwood Cemetery area. During the first decade of the 20th century, the area began to develop with the neighborhoods of Bromley Place and Bromley Manor bringing many residents to what was then rural Bromley. Further down Nottingham Way the historic Bromley Inn is slowly deteriorating and with the financial crunch we have in this year of 2014, chances are nearly nil that anyone with financial means will come along and restore that local treasure that dates back to Charles Fulkert's Bromley Inn, 1897.
