Brewery train discovered in tunnel . in 1988

Following up on our earlier post from Lebreton Flats, here is a Bird's Eye view of Hull taken from the air over the Ottawa River, in what must be around 1920.  In the foreground center is a hydro station that is still there but not used anymore (bottom centre, just below the first smokestack). To the right is a demolition zone, and then what is now the Quebec Hydro station (far right).
