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 main function of the Lachine Canal was to allow the bypass rapids on the St. Lawrence River. This channel is still used today by boating. Commercial navigation now uses the sea which allows the passage of larger boats. This photo was taken at the lock.
