, known as Steeltown, has been a favorite film location since
(2008) because of the historical buildings, parks, train stations, churches and museums in the city and in the surrounding Hamilton area, which help recreate the visual backdrops of turn-of-the-20th-century Toronto.
The original establishing shots used for the
City Morgue and Station House No. 4 buildings in Cabbagetown is actually the 1859 Victorian pump house at the Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology on Woodward Avenue.
