Ragged Chutes - near Cobalt Ontario

The black and white pictures were taken in or about 1905/10 by my great grandfather during construction of the Ragged Chutes Hydraulic Air Plant. The plant burned to the ground in 1986. The color photos were taken by an employee of Ontario Power Generation and have been supplied to me by Jordan Tanner of Parks Canada (Peterborough Lift Lock).
