Pump Houses

Flew out to the pump houses from the Illinois side today during my lunch break and didn’t have a lot of time and makes me nervous still to fly out a half a mile over the Mississippi. The old Chain of Rocks bridge closed in 1968 and I remember driving with my dad many times across it. The Chain of Rocks is a low level dam and why there is the Chain of rocks Canal where the boat at the end of the video is at. Supertramp for the music today from Crisis what Crisis released in September 1975.

    OK, that is just sublimely awesome! There seems to be a lock or weir just downstream of the second pump-house – does it still operate?

    Fantastic stuff!

    Indeed, look at all the chem-trails!

            No. Never.

            It was an awesome video, though!

    Thanks for the reminder of Supertramp – one of the bands of my youth …saw them live at the CNE stadium – they put on one heck of a good show too. I remember when CTV W5 used to have “Fools Overture” as their opening theme.

    Youtube downloader that handles 4K as well.
