JAMES CUNNINGHAM (1873 to 1963)

James Cunningham was a Scottish Immigrant who was passionate about the Seawall. He was a master stonemason who coordinated the construction of the seawall for 32 of the 53 years it took to complete.

His dedication to the construction project is commemorated by a plaque in the cliff face opposite Siwash Rock.

It is in his honour that Lions Gate Road Runners originated and continues to hold the James Cunningham Seawall Race on the last Sunday of every October.
