March 12, 2017 - Cantley 1889’s 7th Annual Meeting - “What Lies Beneath: Cantley before the great flood”

Following the AGM business part of the afternoon, GVHS president Marc Cockburn presented his fascinating, “What Lies Beneath: Cantley before the great flood”, taking the audience on a multi-media voyage along the Cantley side of the Gatineau River. Using Google Earth, archival photos and maps he reconstructed how the river looked before it was flooded in 1927 with the construction of the dams. As indicated by the interesting questions and the appreciative audience reaction, this was, indeed, a wonderful journey through time along our historic river.

Attendees enjoyed socializing with home-made treats afterwards. It was a special afternoon!
