Are You Heading to Lake Ontario?

Bruska - August 27, 2014

As we continue our journey through the Great Lakes via vintage Harbor Reports, it’s time to visit the gateway to Lake Ontario and the Southern Terminus of the Welland Canal, Port Colborne.  The old report E-25 Port Colborne was a mere 4 pages long.  We now have three reports to cover the same ground: E-25 Port Colborne, E-25.5 Welland Cana and O-10 Port Weller.  Click HERE to visit the 1950 report and as usual check out the other three report listed above.

Onward to Ontario

Bruska - July 21, 2014

If you're headed to Lake Ontario there are two canals to get you there.  This month's look back is about the Welland canal.  As is always the case with these vintage reports, it is interesting and informative.  Note the old photos, they speak well of the long history of the canal.  Please click HERE for the old report and then visit the current one.
