Title Moving Main St. Bridge in Welland
Creator  James
Notes  This photograph illustrates the tremendous effort required to maintain a working canal system in a time when methods were still quite rudimentary.

Notes  It's a familiar sight to residents of Port Colborne. A ship sitting by the Robin Hood Flour Mills at the Lake Erie entrance to the Welland canal. A late bloomer when compared to some settlements in Niagara, the place we now call Port Colborne had its beginning in 1832 as Gravely Bay when the Second Welland Canal reached Lake Erie. Not long after that a proper town site was laid out and the name changed to Port Colborne in honour of Sir John Colborne, Govenor of Canada at the time. Port Colborne is also the site of one of the world's largest lift locks. the Welland Canal's Lock 8.

Title Plaque near Miller's Creek along the Niagara Parkway : The Welland Canal at the Niagara Frontier
Creator  Rodman, Heather
Type  Still Image
Collection  Niagara Falls Public Library Digital Collections
Notes  Plaque near Miller's Creek along the Niagara Parkway: The Welland Canal at the Niagara Frontier. The passage of the first two vessels form lake to lake was achieved in 1829. After “stemming the broad and strong current of Niagara”, the vessels reached Black Rock where they were met with bursts of applause and honoured by the discharge of artillery from The Terrace. As stated in the biography of William Hamilton Merritt, the canal's founder, “The Welland Canal was now an accomplished fact. The artificial wedding of the Great Lakes of the west and north with the waters of the Ontario, and eventually with the St. Lawrence and the ocean was complete”
