Here is a great view of the whole of Turcot that allows us to easily see how the waterways explained in the last post could have been.

A- Centre Gadbois

B- Falaise St. Jacques

C- Turcot Interchange

D- Turcot Yards

E- Angrignon Interchange

F- Lachine Canal

G- Canada Malting Plant

H- Aqueduct

The Riviere Saint Pierre would have flowed roughly like this.

There is an enourmous amount of water in this area so it isn’t hard to imagine a lake being in the area of Turcot. Fascinating, isn’t it?
