Paris Dam on the Grand River

After taking pictures of the Soul Tree we went down to the dam on the Grand River. It is a very interesting spot. I’ve never seen a dam built with a S curve before. Construction started in 1918. It was built for Penmans Limited clothing company and was used to provide waterpower in order to operate the company’s mills in the town.  Follow this link http://images.ourontario.ca/brant/72637/data to see a picture of it under construction.
