During times of low water, canal boats would choke the prism waiting for the water levels to rise so they could resume their trips either up or downstream. This summer shot of canal boats in an empty canal bed could have been the result of drought or possibly the canal bed had been drained for repairs. Mule feeding troughs can be seen dotting the towpath with people walking in the background.
