President Eisenhower inspects St. Lawrence Power Dam

Part of the St. Lawrence Seaway Power Project, this 3,300-foot-long U.S.-Canadian hydroelectric station stretches across the St. Lawrence River from near Cornwall, Ontario, to near Massena, New York. The 32 generators can deliver 120,000 kilowatts of power, which is divided equally between the United States and Canada. It was officially opened on September 5, 1958, by Premier Leslie Frost of Ontario and Governor Averell Harriman of New York.
