This photograph shows a host of people who either lived or worked around the Two Locks area. They are standing on the mule crossover bridge that was used by the boatmen when the towpath switched from the berm side of the canal back over to the river side. The Newkirk & Steel store is visible on the left hand side. Tunis Newkirk also sold and rented mules to boatmen.
