- Black and white photograph of Hazel Corman with an unidentified woman in a rowboat on the Niagara River. The same women is standing on the pier (Queenston dock?) and smiling to the camera.
Probably taken in the early 1920s - Miss Hazel Corman became principal of Laura Secord Memorial School in Queenston on September 1, 1918.
- "Mrs. Huggins remembers renting a rowboat at this boat house from John Humphrey, the Queeenston Dockmaster. She and Hazel Corman, then principal of Laura Secord School, where Mrs. Huggins also taught, went on the river. Both of the young ladies knew how to row, but they had difficulty coming back up river against the current. They were late in returning to the boathouse, and there was some concern as to their safety. The rowboats kept here were used to ferry people across to Lewiston, and were rented out when there was no ferrying to be done."
