Notes  The St. Lawrence Seaway in the broadest sense, is a huge water-way extending 2,3000 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the head of the Great Lakes in the heart of North America. The air view shows boats locking through the only triple flight locks in the system. The total lift on the Welland Canal section is 326 feet and ships virtually "climb a mountain."

Title Moving Main St. Bridge in Welland
Creator  James
Notes  This photograph illustrates the tremendous effort required to maintain a working canal system in a time when methods were still quite rudimentary. Notice the concentration of men on the right-hand shore waiting to aid in the process which appears to be largely accomplished by scows and tug-boats.
