Exploring the St. Lawrence River from the Quebec border to Prescott, there are only 60 copies left of this 200 page plus fully illustrated history of the River.

Topics include the Victorian age splendour, running the rapids of the St. Lawrence, the St. Lawrence Seaway and Ontario Hydro project, the Lost Villages, the McIntosh Apple, Dr. M. Locke of Williamsburg, Cariboo Cameron and much, much more.

The book is now available for $30 at the Cornwall Community Museum and the Coles Bookstore in the Cornwall Square.

The Museum’s local history bookroom just acquired a new copy of CORNWALL…from factory town to SEAWAY CITY, by Ian Bowering, published in 1999.  This well illustrated 155 page book contains a history of Pitt Street, sports religion, the Seaway, the waterfront and crossing the St. Lawrence and much more.  Cost:  $25.

The museum also has the illustrated 24 page thumbnail sketch of the booklet 100 YEARS F SERVICE, CORNWALL ELECTRIC,1887 – 1987, FOR ONLY $2.

For the collector of Glengarry County history, our bookroom has one signed copy of HORSE AND BUGGY DAYS IN MARTINTOWN 190 – 1940, by R.C.M. GRANT for only $20.  Anyone who attends local auctions knows that this book frequently sells for much more than this!
