Photographer's Note

This photo was taken on the banks of the Lachine Canal. This canal was an important place of Canada's industrial development. The name "Lachine" comes from the fact that at the arrival of the French in Canada, they looked for a way across Canada to China. "La Chine" means China in French". The abandoned structure does represent the industrial past of this part of town. Today, many of these old industrial buildings has been converted into condo building. Now a national park, the navigation canal is now reserved for boating and sports.
