Lock 33 ( more details)


Reconstruction of Lock 33 Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



When this reconstruction was done, the canal was being operated by the Canal Transportation Company, which had been created by the receivership that took over under court supervision after the C&O Canal Company went bankrupt in 1889. By this time steam-powered equipment was available, making such heavy work as moving the large stones significantly easier than in the 19th century when such equipment did not exist.
