Moving Time and Inundation
Inundation – The Flooding
This page is going to be a repository for photos taken on or about July 1st 1958. Many of the photos taken during this time are difficult for some to look at, yet of interest to others who may have not witnessed the 3-4 day slow rise of water over former town sites, roads and the old St. Lawrence river itself and watched as a new lake formed over their past.
Many of these photos also allow others to young to remember the flooding, to push back the waters slightly and peek at what is usually just offshore or almost uncovered when the waters are low. In other cases, we can see just a little more of what is just out of sight beneath the waves.
