   Concrete flume at Whirlpool St Davids Buried Gorge (image/jpeg)
Title Concrete flume at Whirlpool St Davids Buried Gorge
Creator  Tiplin, Albert H.
Medium  Photograph
Extent  4" x 3" B&W photograph
Notes  Used in the book Our Romantic Niagara by Albert H. Tiplin. This flume was built in order to irrigate the buried gorge. Since the gorge is filled with glacial debris, it would not be able to hold water naturally - by building a concrete sluice, the cache is reinforced and the reservoir remains full.
