Altona Council - tour to Lake of Woods and Lake Superior

While touring north western Ontario, the Altona Council stopped to examine a bridge crossing Berry Creek in the Lake of the Woods area. Location of this bridge is possibly on Highway 71 a few miles north of Sioux Narrows, Ontario. A trunk highway connecting Kenora and Fort Francis was established in the 1930s. For many years the world's longest single span timber bridge (completed in 1936) stood on Highway 71 at Sioux Narrows. The Council certainly must have had some interest in this highway and the bridges along its route, and how it might relate to their jurisdiction in southern Manitoba.

This photo is of the Weichsel [Vistula] River with the new bridge, built in 1973, in the background. The river here has a strong current and whirlpools. On the left side of the photo shrubbery can be seen. An electrical transmission tower can also be seen in the background. This tower transmits power to Konigsberg Elbing.
