Background Information

These galleries of photographs from around the old town of Morrisburg (with the exception of the aerial photos) were all taken by the Reverend George H. Smith in the 1950s in the period before it was flooded by the St. Lawrence Seaway construction completed in 1958. They are presented with the generous permission of his daughter, Claire Delage, the current owner of all copyrights.


We are continuing to add information to Titles and Descriptions for each of the pictures. We would appreciate any information and stories associated with the pictures that anyone can provide.
