Turbines began to become commonplace in the mid-1800's and had virtually replaced vertical waterwheels by the mid 1860's.
Below are a number of illustrations showing typical mill setups and power transfer.
In 1881 the Schoellkopf Power Station near Niagara Falls was built using turbines to generate electricity. Canada followed suit in 1885, with our first hydropower generating station at Montmorency Falls near Quebec City. With these and other technological developments in deasil [sic - diesel] and gasoline technology, the short lived, but fascinating era of industry using direct turbine power soon came to an end.
