Seaway Souvenir Booklet

The Inundation Program was a 66 page souvenir booklet sold to people who attended the July 1-4, 1958 international celebration.

Included were messages from dignitaries at each level.

Also included were photos and highlights from the Project.

The official programme was quite impressive.

A brief account of Cornwall’s founding was also included.

We have a single copy remaining. Visit us today if you’d like to purchase it for your personal library.


  1. I would be interested in purchasing the booklet for my historical collection. Archie Lavigne was my uncle, and my father worked on the construction of the Seaway. It would be a wonderful souvenir. I will be in the Cornwall area next Friday, if possible to pick it up.
