Cape Cod Canal 1939 Add Video

This film taken in 1939-showing the Cape Cod canal and Railroad Bridge. A young couple enjoys the nearby beach in Bourne. Some wreckage still in place from the '38 hurricane. The Cape Cod Canal is a man-made waterway traversing the narrow neck of land that joins Cape Cod to mainland Massachusetts. Part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, the canal is roughly 17.4 miles long (approximately 7 of which are cut through land)[1] and connects Cape Cod Bay in the north to Buzzards Bay in the south. The 540-foot width of the canal is spanned by the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge and two highway bridges -- the Bourne and the Sagamore. Traffic lights govern the approach of vessels over 65 feet, and are located at either end of the canal. From the MLBaron Historical Archives. http://www.westislandweather.com
