Ideal for history buffs interested in inland navigation and industrial history, this volume reveals how the construction of the Lachine Canal starting in 1821 played a pivotal role in the industrial development of Montreal and all of Canada. Truly revolutionary, the canal ultimately allowed ships to bypass the previously insurmountable rapids and reach the Great Lakes, and its many consequences and benefits are described in detail.
