CASE HISTORY OF THE CAPE COD CANAL

John E. Allen

Abstract


No more interesting or appealing subject than the Cape Cod Canal could be assigned to one who is engaged in the study and development of navigation in New England. This sea-level canal, located 50 miles south of Boston at the narrow neck of land joining Cape Cod to the mainland, principally serves coastwise shipping to and from Boston and Northern New England. While it was only completed in 1940 no one should entertain the thought that it is of recent origin.
