Aerials & Maps from Before the Seaway
This section of the site features maps from before the St Lawrence Seaway flooding in 1958, a satellite image of how it looks today, together with ten aerial photos of varying quality from the 1950s.
A big thank you to Clare Delage and Jim Jordan for providing most of these images.
