On this day one hundred years ago, the Cape Cod Canal celebrated its grand opening. While centennial programs are going on all week, the official 100th anniversary commemoration and Canaliversary events (hello, fireworks!) are taking place today. To mark the most auspicious occasion, we've gathered 13 vintage postcards of the wicked awesome waterway with the help of the Boston Public Library's flickr. Happy Birthday, Cape Cod Canal!
