The Bend.

The flow is from the right side of the pic. Note the green area. That was all river when I was a boy and it was a thrill to watch The Bore come up the river. The Brown trickle you see is the river now. It is known locally as The Chocolate River because that is what's left after The Mighty Petitcodiac was destroyed by greedy asshole politicians.

Salmon, trout, shad, seals, porpoise...

Over a hundred schooners anchored off the docks in the days of sail...

Huge warehouses, rail, roads... The Hub of the Maritimes...

Bastard politicians tore a chunk of history out of the hearts of thousands.
