The Kipawa Power Station on the East bank of the Ottawa River in Temiscaming was supplied by a pipe of the diameter you see in the photograph. The pipe collected water at the Lumsden Dam on Gordon Creek above the town, ran through the centre of town and delivered the water to the turbines in the power house. The electricity was used to power the pulp mill and light the town.
The town has created a linear Park with historical information stops to tell the story of the development of Temiscaming.
I am a grey haired wrinkler who lives in the North of Ontario in God's Country.
I get to look around me and take interest in things that I was always too busy to stop and investigate.
I make a lot of photographs of some of them.
