Anderson’s Ferry, was in front of Cornwall’s East Front School.
It is just one of the many stops along the St. Lawrence River from the Lachine Rapids to Prescott that will be made in the new book by Quarry Press, THE LIVING RIVER, THE ST. LAWRENCE RIVER FROM MONTREAL TO CORNWALL TO PRESCOTT, by Ian Bowering and Lor Pelton, due to be published early January 2017. $29.95 plus tax.
The Anderson Ferry was one of a number found along the waterfront. The ferry here, plied the waters between Cornwall and St. Regis. This 1930s photograph shows Mrs. Brownridge, standing. Sitting in the centre of the photograph is Mrs. W.S. Reylea. Harry Webster is seen standing on the ferry. Really no more than a scow, the ferry was towed across the river by a motor boat.
This photograph is from the collection of the Cornwall Community Museum.
