    Lithograph of the schooner La Canadienne

    Before roads and railways linked the different municipalities bordering the River, transport was essentially by ship.

    As of the late 18th century, goods and passengers were carried on board small, very agile sailboats called schooners.

    Some were used for fishing or for more official missions, like La Canadienne. This armed schooner was responsible for protecting the Gulf of St. Lawrence fisheries.
