Tatra 30

The Tatra 30 is an automobile made by the Czech manufacturer Tatra. It was manufactured between 1926 and 1928. From 1928 to 1931 the car was fitted with newer engine and is therefore called Tatra 30/52. Tatra 30 was powered by an OHV air-cooled four-cylinder boxer engine of 1679 cc, positioned at the front and giving a claimed output of 24 PS; the maximum speed was around 90 km/h. Tatra 30 Sport was powered by engine of similar design, but with 1910 cc, which gave it 32–35 PS; this version was capable of speeds up to 130 km/h. During the modernization process the "52" engine was fitted, it had 1911 cc and 22 kW. This was a transitory mid-version before the production of the successor began, it was manufactured for a period of about one year. Tatra 30 was modernized until it was replaced by Tatra 52. Power was delivered to the rear wheels via a four-speed gearbox; the Tatra 30 featured a central backbone chassis, a hallmark of chief designer Ledwinka: the front axle was supported by a transverse leaf spring while a second transverse leaf spring supported the swing rear half-axle.

The drive shaft is situated inside the backbone tube. The gearbox and engine are mounted in front of the backbone tube, while the differential is at the rear. Tatra 30 was in the medium size category. Many different versions were made from four seat cabriolets to six seat limousines. Tatra 30 has mechanical brakes. Tatra 30 is more angular its fenders. A problem is that during the 1940s to 1960s, many cars were rebuilt, e.g. by the owner replacing a mechanical-brakes undercarriage for one with hydraulic brakes. - Tatra 30

Popelogan Depot, New Brunswick

Popelogan Depot is an unincorporated community in Restigouche County, New Brunswick, Canada. The etymology of the word Popelogan has been debated over the years. One theory is that the word derives from the Maliseet describing "a place to stop at, where one touches." According to the linguist Rand, the word was of Mi'kmaq origin and meant "long narrow stone." According to a traveler in the area in the late nineteenth century, a Mi'kmaq chief said that the area meant "a bad place to get logs out." Most the word is a bastardization of "pokeloken" a word used by lumberjacks from Maine, who worked in New Brunswick, which means "marsh." List of communities in New Brunswick

Lake Blouin

Lake Blouin is an ellipse shaped natural fresh water lake in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue Administrative Region, Canada. The lake, oriented on a southwest–northeast axis, measures 13.5 km in length and has a maximum width of 2 km. It is shallow with a maximum depth of 30 m, is located just north of the city of Val-d’Or, Quebec, it is the headwater of the Harricana River. All three rivers are situated near its northeastern end; the shore of lake Blouin is lined with sandy beaches. The lake lies within the Clay Belt, a vast tract of flat land with fertile soil covering 180,000 km2 in northwest Quebec and northeast Ontario. Lake Blouin takes its name from Alphonse Blouin, a surveyor for Quebec’s Ministry of Lands and Forests who made a number of journeys to the area in 1905 and 1906. At the time, the lake was called Pakitanika which means "Lake of the Goose" in the Algonquian language. Lake Blouin played a key role in the development of Val-d’Or and the gold mines on which its economy is based, it was the main access route for surveyors at the beginning of the 20th century.

In the early 1920s, when a number of gold mines were starting up around what was to become Val-d’Or, Lake Blouin allowed heavy equipment required for mining operations to be transported by boat from the town of Amos. A dock was built for that purpose at the south east end of the lake in 1925. Settlers and miners use this route to access the area; as early as 1920, the lake was used as landing site for floatplanes providing services to the area. In 1946, a dock and fuelling station for these planes was opened on the south east shore of the lake. In 1949, a daily flight, using amphibious aircraft landing on Lake Blouin, linked Val-d’Or to Montreal. Lake Blouin was for a brief period used for timber rafting logs from the Val-d’Or area to the sawmill in Amos. Fish species found in lake Blouin are: brown bullhead, yellow walleye, black walleye, Northern pike, White sucker, Longnose Sucker, Yellow perch. Lake Blouin is featured in a popular song by Val-d’Or native Raôul Duguay called "La bitt à Tibi".

The Rotary municipal beach on Lake Blouin is a popular summer attraction. Chabot, Denys, L'Abitibi centenaire, 1898-1998, Société d’histoire de Val-d’Or ISBN 2980471925 Chabot, Robitaille, Jean, L’Houmeau, Histoire de Val-d’Or: des origines à 1995, Société d’histoire de Val-d’Or, ISBN 2980471909
