Fonds contains b&w photograph (and enlargement) of the Norvic Ferry as it is coming in to shore. Unidentified passengers, crew and automobile are on deck. It operated between the Norway Bay wharf on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River to Sand Point in Ontario. An undated article originally published in the Shawville Equity newspaper by Pat Schoular gives a comprehensive history of the ferry that operated on the Ottawa River for 45 years. It was named by Captain Gamble in 1922 after Norway Bay and the first three letters of Vickers, the boat builders. It was shipped to Sand Point by railway from Montreal and assembled before its maiden voyage in July 1923. It was sold to Mr. William Teron and recommissioned as a private, luxury boat called the Norvic 1 and launched in October 1989.
This image shows the Arnprior Lighthouse circa 1970's. Information on the back of the photo reads:
Navagation Light, Arnprior Island, Chats Lake. Latitude 45, 27, 21 North. Longitude 76, 21, 10 West
Originally established in 1885, operating by Kerosene and changed to automatic operation on acetylene gas sometime before 1959. In that year it was converted to battery operation (low voltage) and remained so until it was destroyed by fire April 25, 1973. The present light is also battery operated and fully automatic. It will probably be up-dated in 1975. Source not provided for this information.
This image shows the Malloch House which was located on the west side of the Dochart Creek overlooking the Ottawa River. It was built by George M. Malloch in about 1875 and was known as Aldavalloch. It was sold to Stan Reid and demolished in the early 1970's.
