In the first day of our Heritage Planning workshop we discussed different definitions of heritage, introduced ourselves and our interest in the topic, looked at the international context as well as had a visual presentation of some international heritage themes.
We also got a tour of our workshop location, the Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology Museum:
Group learning about the architecture of the buildings
Listening to an explanation of how the waterworks operated.
Observing the two large engines that pumped the water to the City of Hamilton
Director of the HRC, Robert Shipley wearing a safety hat
