Moore in his "Canadian Boat Song." This picture was not made on the
spot, but from the engineer's drawing, and is not quite correct; the two
mountains should be the same height as the one on the left; also the
bridge, the first erected at this point, is much shorter than it appears in
the view. The latter was removed about thirty years ago and replaced by
