Exploring Photos with Jim Smith: NOTL Sailing Club
1950s era NOTL Sailing Club painting by Capt. John Shaw. (Jim Smith/Special)

This painting was done by late Niagara artist and sailor, Capt. John Shaw. It is now in the possession of resident Terry Boulton. The painting shows what the entrance to the Niagara Sailing Club looked like in the early 1950s. The slip, as it was called, was lined with private boat houses where residents could simply motor their boat straight into their shed and tie it up.
