Louis Shickluna 1808-1880

Reputedly a ship's carpenter in his native Malta, Shickluna worked in several North American shipyards before coming to St. Catharines in 1838. The extensive shipbuilding operations he developed there contributed significantly to navigation on the Great Lakes as well as to the economic prosperity of the town.
