I will have to look in my dads old photos to see if he has any of the cartetakers house. In the thirties that dam was the drinking water supply for Nanaimo, and swimming was not allowed. He tells me of hot summer nights, going up there, sneaking in and swimming around the dam once to cool off. Had to swim very quietly so not to alert the caretaker. One of my vivid memories as a young kid swimming up there was a big guy named Freddy. He was about eighteen, and pretty heavy. He has a kids tricycle he would put under his arm, swim out to the tower and climb up. Memory is hazy but I think the platform at the top was about maybe 10x10. He would ride this trike from one side to the other and fall off into the water, only to repeat the process may times daily. Amusing to watch.
