The Rideau Canal in fact only has 1 2 miles that are effectively called canal, the other 124 mile system follows lakes and streams. Yet the Rideau has played a primary role in the settling of Canada. It now is a major tourist attraction, and scenes of hundreds of people skating on the Redeau in the nation's capital is as familiar to Canadians as photos of Parliament Hill. The editor and others realized that there was a wealth of material on the Canal but it was laying idle in public and private collections. This is an attempt to bring a substantial selection of photos and drawings together, juxtaposed with the rich history of the canal and the communities along the water way, and show case it all in this fascinating pictorial history of the Rideau.
