Notice on the dam
It says: AUTOMATIC TURBINE ACTION MAY RELEASE SWIFT WATER ANY TIME WITHOUT WARNING. NO ACCESS BEYOND CABLE AT ALL TIMES. I think that should be "any time" instead of "all times". And "swift water" seems a little over delicate- don't they mean "absolutely huge gushes of water that could sink your boat and drown you"? The old-fashioned writing is nice though. The dam, called Tom Miller dam, was built in the 30's (1938 to 1940), an era of great modernist design; Austin also has a gorgeous 30's power station, which I will capture pictorially for you soon.
