Thousand Islands Bridge Dedicated on August 18, 1938 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt

The Thousand Islands Bridge is an international bridge over the Saint Lawrence River connecting northern New York in the United States with southeastern Ontario in Canada. Constructed in 1937, with additions in 1959, the bridge spans the United States-Canada border in the middle of the Thousand Island region, from which it derives its name. The bridge is administered by the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority, an international agency.
The actual international border bridge crossing is between Wellesley Island in the United States and Hill Island in Canada.

For many years this was the way I crossed over to Canada to go to my grandfather's summer house, Zavikon. Once in Canada, we turned right and drove to Rockport, Ontario only a few miles away. Then one of three inboard boats picked us up to go to Zavikon. (See my August 1 post.)
