Morrisburg – Waddington Ferry.

The Morrisburg – Waddington Ferry.

Originally named H.C.M. No. 17, this vessel was built in Montreal in 1904 as a grain elevator.

The boat was eventually acquired by the Morrisburg – Waddington Transportation Co., and renamed M.V. Morrisburg and Skippered by Douglas Cassel.

To learn more about this vessel and various ferries that sailed the waters of the St. Lawrence see THE LIVING RIVER – SECRETS OF THE ST. LAWRENCE, from Montreal to Cornwall to Prescott, by Lor Pelton and Ian Bowering, and published by Quarry Press.

In Cornwall the book is only available at the Cornwall Community Museum for $30.  The museum is open Wed. to Sun. 10 am to 4 pm.
