Photographer's Note

The road along the river bank of the St. Lawrence between where we live and our nearest town of Cornwall presents a beautiful view even in winter time. Many years ago this river bank was the site of summer homes belonging to people in Montreal. who would drive down on weekends and stay at cottages lining the banks. Over time however, people wanted to inhabit these homes on a year round basis, so cottages were winterized, and some were demolished and newer sturdier homes built in the area. With the advent of people living permanantly along the river bank, came the need for power lines to supply the necessary hydro electric power to fuel the lights, heaters and appliances of these homes. This resulted in the ugly black hydro wires being strung along the river frontage to supply the power. Probably it is not feasible to bury the wires underground, as the ground freezes in winter to a depth of about 3 ft. making it extremely difficult to access the power lines in case of need.
