Flickr photo of the day: Boat wash

Compass

In this well-timed photograph by Roy Cheung, a young man cleans his supply boat on the shore of Lake Arthur Hill. Among the many things the British did during their years occupying India was their introduction of modern engineering and infrastructure to the subcontinent. Take for instance the huge dam they built across the Pravara River, near Bhandaradara.

Built at a site discovered by Arthur Hill in 1903, taking 16 years to build, the 270-foot-tall structure opened on Dec. 10, 1926 and was the highest dam in Asia at that time. Today its reservoir, Lake Arthur Hill, is still an invaluable resource for capturing monsoon rains for useful purposes.
