Aerial Photography of the NS&T

This morning, I had the idea that vintage aerial photography might help me trace the Niagara St. Catharines & Toronto – and I found an excellent resource online at Brock University.

The Niagara Air Photo Index includes photography of St. Catharines, Thorold, Welland, and Port Colborne, and covers multiple eras dating back to 1921.

I note the university library also has a number of vintage maps online, so there’s plenty to explore…

  1. Nice find, Trevor. Wish I had access to something similar when I was researching the Key Valley Railway for my MRP 2003 article. I remember it cost me about $60 and 2 months time to have the 1920’s vintage photographs printed.
