Open the Floodgates!

The '38 hurricane and Carol in '54 drowned Downcity Providence in eight feet of water and brought about this massive barrier in Fox Point to hold back the tide. The other structures are the new bridge to the left (the highway is being moved out of downtown) and the power generators to the right, built in 1995.

The 19th Century has no lock on brawny infrastructure!
