Interesting article and bit of cultural history. As a relative newcomer i just assumed "the Hammer" was a longstanding term.

I do remember on the Westcoast hearing Hamilton referred to as "steeltown" ... generally in an affectionate way.

Incidentally, animosity and sniping nicknames were usually reserved for Calgary/Edmonton/Alberta and the City down the road to our east, which was generically referred to along with Ottawa and Montreal as "back east".
