City Daily Photo Theme Day--"Water"

The mill race as it flows through the grounds of the Mission Mill Museum.

According to the Salem Public Library, Oregon Historic Photograph Collections, this race has quite a history. It was created by the early pioneers to divert water from Mill Creek for use by local industries. In the 1870's it provided water for the Pioneer Oil Company at this site. When the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill was built here (which still stands is open for tours), it powered the gears and belts which ran the entire mill operation. Continuing through the Willamette University campus, it powered a city generating station at Liberty & Trade Streets, and a lumber mill which stood where it emptied into the Willamette River.

More then 170 members of City Daily Photo have joined in this month for theme day -- water! Please enjoy a visit to a few cities that interest you.
