Description

"THE QUEBEC BRIDGE: The Quebec Bridge is the most magnificent and striking work of Canadian engineering. It was 12 years building, it cost over $21,000,000 and until 1929 was the longest span in the world. It links the city of Quebec to the industrial districts south of the St. Lawrence, and joins the Fort William - Quebec grain route to the rail lines of the Maritimes Provinces."

Excerpt from "CANADIAN GEOGRAPHY & ECONOMICS: The St. Lawrence River" (Lecture A.4 and A.11); booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, about 1930.
