Description

Black and white photographic print of the Welland River running under the Welland Canal through the Aqueduct. Captioned "In Welland visitors can view an astounding engineering accomplishment. In the heart of downtown Welland, the Welland River passes under the Welland Canal. This is accomplished by what is known as an inverted culvert syphon, composed of six tubes 22 feet in diameter and about 75 feet deep. Completed in 1928 the installation is known locally as "the aqueduct." The view above shows the Welland Canal running from left to right (Lake Erie to Lake Ontario) and the river running from the top of photo to bottom... right under the 30 ft. deep Canal."
