Old Films of Canada's Niagara Region Historical Preservation Project

Click HERE to watch my youtibe  collection of these 1920s to 1980s 16mm & 8mm Films

This history project began in June 2016, seeking old films of the 4 Welland Canals and the whole Niagara Region.

As of June 2018, I have 53 videos of old films of the Niagara Region in the collection from between 1921 and 1977. on youtube, including a 1929 ferry ride from Toronto to a day spent by 100s at Lakeside Park in Port Dalhousie filmed by Denton Massey, 9 Niagara Grape and Wine Festivals in St Catharines 1952-1977, the construction of the 4th Welland Canal Bypass of Welland City 1968-1973, and the 1939 Royal Visit drive-by.

Still hoping to find even just one old film of the old Welland Canals, with a commercial sailing schooner somewhere on the 2nd or 3rd.
