"Shacktown"

"WORKING-CLASS HAMILTONIANS responded to a local housing crisis by creating a boathouse community along the shoreline of Burlington Bay and Dundas Marsh. Leasing or simply squatting the land, they enjoyed access to good fishing and hunting, a clean place to live, and seclusion from the gaze of local police."

About 1/2 down, there are some cartoon drawings from the Hamilton Herald (2 Aug 1924).
