Development of the Water-Power Industry in Paris
Conclusion and references

By the end of Capron’s life, his vision for Paris had come true – using the power available from the flow of its two rivers, Paris had become a successful town with many thriving industries. He did not bring about all of these changes himself, and he would not live to see the eventual success of the Penman Manufacturing Co., but he laid the groundwork for all of the improvements that were to come; it was thanks to Capron’s vision and hard work in developing the architecture for water-power that Paris was able to grow and flourish.
