Exploring History: Niagara Camp, c. 1920
NOTL Museum photo.

The Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum recently discovered a series of photographs of Niagara Camp taken by George A. Bash from Canton, Ohio. Although the exact location on the Commons is unknown, it is possible that this one may have been taken at the Lakeshore Road camp where the military engineers were training. Apparently, there were buildings located there as well. The men appear to be members of the Canadian Engineers. The engineers would practise building and dismantling bridges, seen on the right, or other defensive works such as the sandbag and wood structure seen on the left.
