From Choice: The St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project was one of the greatest public works projects of the 20th century, connecting the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean by means of seven locks that raised the level of the St. Lawrence River between Montreal and Lake Ontario. After more than 50 years of negotiations, the project finally begin in 1954 and was completed in 1958, due to close cooperation between the Canadian and US governments. This major engineering feat employed 22,000 people who migrated to Massena (New York) and Cornwall (Ontario) to work on this project. This work is rich with stories of life on and off the job, construction problems, esprit de corps, and the leisure time experiences of the wives.
