The Cape Cod Canal Centennial (Video)

The 'official' 100th anniversary for the Cape Cod Canal is July 29th. The last 100 years have seen the Cape change dramatically, from a largely agricultural and fishing area to a place that has a significant vacation and retirement population. This video, courtesy of the Cape Cod Times, is of a trip through the Canal in 1927, long before the construction of the current Bourne and Sagamore Bridges.

The Cape Cod Canal's Centennial celebration has its own website with an event schedule, a detailed history, and lots of great photos.
