This is Part 5 in a Museum Chat Live! podcast mini-series detailing the Fallen Workers of the Welland Canal. Click to listen to the earlier episodes in this series.

In this episode, we share a bit about crime and unlawful behaviour in relation to the construction of the Welland Canal and its workers. By acknowledging and sharing even the less honourable stories connected to the Fallen Workers, we hope to glean further insight into the workings of St. Catharines and Canadian society at this particular moment in time.



This episode was produced using primary source material as well as the Fallen Workers series published by the St. Catharines Standard and Niagara Falls Review. For more information on the Fallen Workers discussed in this podcast episode, please follow the links below.
