The City of St. Catharines has officially unveiled ‘The Pull’, a commemorative art piece that pays homage to the tow horses that played a crucial role in the history of the Welland Canals. Kiwanis St. Catharines and the Port Dalhousie Beautification and Works Committee were responsible for the fundraising efforts and collaborating with the artists to plan and install the artwork at Lock One on Lakeport Rd. The project was supported by the Niagara Community Foundation, private donors, and volunteers. The artwork, which was sculpted by Veronica and Edwin Dam de Nogales of Barcelona, Spain, and Floyd Elzinga of Beamsville, Ontario, was created by combining bronze and weathering steel. It depicts a tow horse in mid-stride with its harness fastened and its head leaning forward.
