Photographer's Note

One of the places that Charles (Can) showed me was this hidden gem, the hydroeletric central in the Soulanges Canal. From there we went back to his house to meet his wife and had a wonderfull dinner all together. Thanks a lot for this wonderful day!

About the canal: One of the inovations at the canal the Soulanges was the hydroelletric power, which made possible to iluminate 23,4 km along the canal as well to activating the engines of its mobile structures: locks,swing bridges,spillways. The use of this new kind of energy favoured the canal's maximum operations. Wiht its lamps all along, the boats could traverse the canal 24 hours a day. Also with the inovation, the operation costs as well as the number of eployees necessary to opperate the canal were reduced. The electrification of the canal lead to the construction of the building which architecture still impress. Infuenced by an architecture style wich is typically canadian, the building resenbles a castle. The enseble dates from the beggining of the XIX century.
