RUINS

RUINS
Ruins of the old Pinawa Dam in Manitoba, Canada.

Located on the Winnipeg River, Pinawa Dam was Manitoba’s first hydro-electric generating station. Pinawa Dam was developed in response to the demand for residential and commercial power and was crucial to the rapid growth of Winnipeg in the pre-war years. The station began delivering power in 1906 and was closed in 1951 to allow the full flow of the Winnipeg River to serve the Seven Sisters Hydro Station built downstream.

It certainly is more beautiful now than when it was built. Gorgeous shot, John.

A very cool picture and such interesting information too. I wonder if the population suffered when the dam was moved?

Nice perspective and details here, must have been fun to visit!
