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
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?
