Transcript of video: Bellows Landing

Video of an historical map of Chaudière Falls, with surrounding islands, timber channels, and Firth’s Tavern. The video begins by showing the map in its entirety, rendered in shades of brown watercolour and labelled in cursive with black ink. Waterways are rendered in blue, with buildings marked in faded red. The view then zooms into the bottom half of the document, focusing on the falls. The word “Firths” is highlighted and enlarged, followed by the words “old channel.” The notation “DDD” is then highlighted and enlarged, followed by the words “DDD Timber Channel excavated by order of Lord Dalhousie in the winter of 1826 & 1827.” The view then fades to black. Video is 29 seconds in duration.
