In the early twentieth century, electricity was generated from power plants on the Souhegan River. I am only aware of one that was located in Greenville, NH. I know that a penstock ran from Waterloom Pond to High Bridge in New Ipswich which produced power for the mill, however I am not sure if that was mechanical or electrical. I'd like to learn if these photos were taken locally. As with the other archival shots, I have no information about the date or location.
