After the Canal closed. ( more details)

Near 2 Locks Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Five boats are moored in a boat basin near Two Locks. The empty boats were abandoned by their captains and are left to decay in the canal after operations shut down in 1924. With the end of the canal lifelong boatmen had to find new employment and many never gave up hope that the canal would resume operations again one day.
